Somehow we have failed to mention bonom at all on the blog so its time to fix that. Here are some select works shot by kriebel. And if credit is your thing these are all illegal. Old news to some but worth putting it on the roll.

Just received word from jestonorama about this new project. The scale and concern with local dilemmas always remains inspiring. From his blog: “i asked several friends what their feelings are about the sacred mountain slated to receive artificial snow made from reclaimed waste water. with the help of raechel running, stephanie jackson and rey cantil, their words were written or painted onto their faces and the final images were wheat pasted.”

For all of those who have been to Williamsburg’s Kent Avenue, Monster Island is a memorable building in attendance amongst the glistening condos that have reshaped the neighborhood’s landscape and demographics. Slated for demolition, the murals adorning the side of this non-profit artist space were washed away in a veil of vibrant color; a sad chapter in the gentrification of the area.

After a fabulous summer in Atlanta, Living Walls is migrating up north to Albany, NY and has finally been kicking off. Brooklyn Street Art has been providing some great coverage of the work going up around the city prior to the event from Chris Stain, Clown Soldier, Nanook, Overunder, White Cocoa and myself. Here are a couple glimpses of the progress being made.

Living Walls conference was a tremendous success bringing some of the most recognized international street artists to the beautiful city of Atlanta. Inevitably, when you put a bunch of them in one city, some unsanctioned work is bound to go up. Here is a little overview of the work Nanook and I produced for the A. And check out the full map of spots that are still running and or have been buffed here

As a young buck coming up in the Street Art world over the years in New York, I’ve definitely been through the ringer in order to get down with this expansive yet furtive local community. No one’s aired me out more than Skewville, and no one has given my hair such a run for its money. Skewville’s solo exhibition,“Your Ad Here” just opened with my people over at Pawn Works exactly six days ago, and by the photos that were released, the show looks like a tremendous success. Opening just in time for Fairey’s latest extravaganza in Copenhagen, I didn’t necessarily “sit down” with Ad from Skewville, but made a little sortie into our Brooklyn boy’s mind and swollen ego.
GAIA: So let’s get it straight, what street did you really grow up on in New York?
AD: Have you not been paying attention… its not where you’r from, its where you’r at.
GAIA: … Or I heard it’s not where you’re from but where you pay rent Explain How the title “Your Ad Here” came about?
AD: Still not paying attention? the tittle of the Show is “Not my Type”. You must be thinking of someone else’s show, but i wanted to re-reuse” Your Ad Here” in the signage just to remind people that is still not mine.
GAIA: Thoughts on Chicago ?
AD: From what ive seen, It reminds me of the early Bklyn days… a hipster training camp on the verge of a yuppie takeover and Nick from Pawnworks is the Mayoral candidate trying to hold it down. Vote Nick in 2012.
GAIA: Best Place to eat?
AD: The Sunoco down the block from the gallery, semi-frozen Pizzas for $1.99
GAIA: Whats the low on Beauty Bar?
AD: So they wanted me to repaint the awning that Spector did, Uh ” Hells Yeah!” with Pleasure. but their cock-blocking my lingo.. I mean “For Reals!” they got Hot, Drunk, 21 year old’s bumping and grinding to 90’s hip hop but they don”t get the irony of me painting ” Hot Mess”. So as of now.. it’s still pending.
GAIA: Where’s your better half at?
AD: A common Skewville Motto is “Divide and conquer.” So I just checked-in and Droo is chilling poolside in the Hamptons.
GAIA: How was the reception?
AD: Skewville was well received in Chi-town, You know the grass is always Greener, Hence the swollen ego. But you know once I get back to basement of Beat down Brooklyn I easily put myself in check.
GAIA: Smoke much?
GAIA: Curveball. What’s your obsession with tingly god juice?
Ad: if you know, you know… but everything tastes great when handed to you by a Gorgeous, Fun Loving Blond…
GAIA:Why can’t you get your ears wet?
Ad: ha ha… OK. now where getting deep…its from a childhood illness, but on a positive note, it keeps Droo’s kids from splashing me in the pool and fucking with my hair.
GAIA: So Whose really doing it in America?
AD:hmmm…this is a tuff one. the competition is fierce in the land of black and white woodcut animal head mash-ups that are oversize laser-printed on daddy’s dime.
GAIA: Fierce… What can I say. Anything on the horizon? Better be good…
Ad: Think Space, LA this month, Black Book, CO. in Oct. White Walls, SF in Jan… and after that you might have to talk to my New agent or you can more likely find me sleeping under the BQE.
