Becki Fuller’s 2010 Top 40

2010 has been yet another crazy year, filled with lots of change, adventure, and as always, fun. The highlight for me was the adoption of my dog Ava, who I consider to be New York’s #1 pit bull street art model. I was also very fortunate in getting to meet and spend time with some really fantastic people, such as ECB, Jef Aerosol, Sweet Toof, Ludo, and Roa, during their stays in the city. My trips to Oaxaca, Art Basel Miami, and getting to see Steve Powers bring his Love Letter project to my hometown of Syracuse were a great way to rounded out the year. After taking a look back on this year, I would like to share some of my favorite photos, people, art & events from 2010 (see Luna Park’s list here).

Have a Happy and Healthy New Year!

Willoughby Windows v2.0

Garrison & Alison Buxton of Ad Hoc Art are back in downtown Brooklyn for the second year in a row, bringing us their latest installation of Willoughby Windows. The concept remains the same: to bring art directly to the community by creating a storefront gallery along an entire block of Willoughby Street, though the artists have changed. This year’s lineup includes C.Damage, Chris Mendoza & Pablo Power, Daryll Peirce, Faust, Hellbent, Jef Aerosol, Joe Iurato, Laura Lee, LogikOne, Ron English, Skewville, and Thundercut.

Shaken, Not Stirred

Well, another exciting week has come and gone here in Brooklyn. Jef Aerosol’s flight has touched down safely in France and we are left with nothing but our memories…oh yeah, and a whole lot of video & photo documentation. Carlito Brigante has been busy at work in the editing room this week, and he has just re-emerged with these new gems:

French Connection

There is no question that French artists have played a pioneering role in the history of stenciling. Legends such as Blek le Rat, Miss.Tic and Jef Aerosol paved the way for today’s crop of talented French stencilists, of which C215, the Dude Company and Tian are but a few of the many worth mentioning.

We’re pleased to share with you the work of French photographer/videographer and Brooklyn resident Carlito Brigante, who has actively documented his fellow countrymen in action in New York:

This Friday, January 29th marks the long overdue debut solo show in New York of the iconic French street artist Jef Aerosol. A true pioneer of the street art movement, Aerosol has been hitting the streets with his stencils since 1982..and clearly he shows no signs of slowing down any time soon!

Despite his being busy preparing for the show, Jef still found some time to swing by the Robots Will Kill walls in Bushwick today for a little painting on the street. It was there that I was able to catch up with him and two of my favorite photographers/bloggers, Vinny Cornelli and Carlito Brigante. There is not much to complain about when you are able to spend a sunny Sunday afternoon surrounded by talented, funny, and humble gentlemen, such as these three!
