what makes street art good? technical skill certainly plays a a huge role but in my opinion, it’s placement and wit that really elevate a piece. this “forced” colaboration between GAIA and SKEWVILLE is a perfect example of such. GAIA’s wolf is technically good, but it’s the addition of “look mom, I’m a street artist” that makes it memorable. seen in an increasingly popular alley near the factory fresh gallery in bushwick, brooklyn.

all things considered it’s been rather wintry in new york this year — today we picked up another couple of inches, making this flowery kuma piece in red hook look even sweeter.

deuce seven hails from minneapolis originally but seems to spend quite a lot of time traveling on (and painting) freight trains these days. he comes through new york a couple of times a year and always leaves an intensly colorful trail in his wake. this multi-headed bug painting was spotted at an abandoned cement factory in williamsburg, brooklyn. more from deuce seven here.
