As promised today I finally have a group of the Bushwick Collective shots.
These first captures all have a singular theme. They are about the process of street art. Every artist has their own way of working, the artistic process. Street art is no different Every artist works in their own way with different results and different styles.
Some artists spend time with the sketch book.
Some artists do a rough sketch to start their wall.
Some use a grid approach like in Damien Mitchell’s tribute to Nina Simone above. Others use source material like Lexi Bella is doing in the work below
Others like Meresone, below, have been doing it so long that they can totally rework their original idea on the fly.
Some like FKDL/Franck Duval use wheatpaste collage techniques and old fashion paint brushes. While others use stencils like Fumero is doing below.
And for many it is about total can control… even two-handed geniuses with the spray.
Legends like Adam Fujita above and Col. Wallnuts below are all about the can control.
The one thing they all have in common, an agreement with Solus’ sentiment below.
Curious about the finished works? Well, stay tuned because there is a lot more to come. Including a bunch of time with Fumero as he brought new life to a Bushwick Baby.
So, next time then…
