PASTE-UP IN BROOKLYN

Headlining today’s post … Diversity is hope by Raf Urban

For years on end, graffiti and murals can hold their own against Mother Nature’s onslaught of cold, heat, and precipitation. On the other hand, weather can quickly wreak devastation on wheatpastes, slaps, and stickers.

Regrettably, the more prevalent extinction event ephemeral art faces is mankind. Wait; surely man-unkind is a better description of those folks who delight in defacing, dissing, and ripping down wheatpastes. Fortunately, Charm City Streets discovered in Brooklyn a wealth of ephemeral art unscathed by the antics of these destructive crackpots and kooks.

The gallery of these wheatpastes and stickers (some quite recent, a number simply new to CCS, but each one worthy of note) features Drsc0, FKDL, Imnopi, Lungebox (who like my grandson loves eyeballs), Myth*GDS, Ruben Ubiera, SheWolf, Viral Punk, and many others.

The artwork of FKDL (Franck Duval) harks back to the fashion elegance of the 1950s and 1960s.

These wheatpastes by London-based artist Anna Laurini have a simple yet strong graphic aspect.
