UncuttArt, and a Sampling of NYC’s StreetArt

Street art is ephemeral. The building can be torn down, other people can tag it, weather, fires, and a host of other things can damage, destroy or efface this work. But as “Beyond The Streets,” the moving street art exhibition showed, even the pieces that have vanished are worth a look.

Oenotria—Italian Wines with Italian Food

The ancient Greeks called Italy “Oenotria” the land of wine. WIth over 350 regions and over 500 native wine grapes, this should surprise no one.

It’s survival in the City: Urban Art that has survived the years on the Streets of New York

By its nature, Street Art doesn’t survive long. It’s ephemeral.

Trolling Brooklyn & LA for Street Art

Brooklyn’s street art tends to be more bootstrap, guerrilla, and pick up, more stickers and graffiti, while in LA, there is more of the large format, paid artist mural. Sure, it has there are the guerrilla works, as there is in even small towns. Each has a bit of all, but the cities different vibes trickle down into the art: sunny and spacious leads to colorful murals, while the winter and density of buildings produce smaller works, more out of the basement or bedroom workshop style.

Street Art from Rome, Williamsburg BK

by wlancehunt in Brooklyn, Poster, Rome, sign, stencil, sticker, Street Art

This fortnightly, we have a sampling of street art from Rome, and Williamsburg, Brooklyn. In the old city of Rome, Centro Storico, stickers, signs and posters are most of the street art. By that I mean, not Roman buildings and sculptures, nor the outdoor displays of Renaissance glory. I’m talking contemporary art, mostly by just people showing off or having a good time, with a dose of commerce and humor tossed in. Billy-burg, Brooklyn is a hipster ghetto and so lousy with folks showing off with all sorts of things, many with serious social and political commentary built right in. Today’s image is a toe-dip in that ocean, a tease.
