It is bill day, work day end of the month day. Finishing up the drawing for my first painting for an ongoing street project. Just about to start the next collage.
As I work, I've been thinking more about street art. I saw some new Bäst the other day. His work exemplifies what I was discussing in an earlier post. The street needs his work. His work feels so much more essential on the street than in a frame, in al the right ways. And this is quite interesting as most of his works are square format, which would lend itself to a frame. His reworking of the figure speaks loads about the abstract energy that exists in piss-odored doorways, with the peeling paint, littered with adverts. His action on the street holds a Ray Gun - like mirror up to the city and reprocesses it trowing it back to the city.
