Here it is, the final post from the Bushwick Block Party. This one is all about the Fumeroism.
I followed this work for a couple of weeks as it came to life. Rain kept getting in the way and then he went too high and had to pretty much redo the whole thing. But in the end a baby was born. I will let him tell you a little bit about the piece in his own words:
First up, the wall. These shots were taken just a few days before he buffed and started on this year’s creation.
Same wall less than 3 days later, progress halted by the rain.
Note, he went too high. Next up the high pressure hoses and a redo.
Another one of those serendipitous moments, the irony of the words “non existence” being written in the sky as the baby is being washed from existence.
Baby is much closer to reality at this point, just in time for the Block Party!
And now Block Party Day
The finished baby in all her glory.
So, next time then…
