This Friday, January 29th marks the long over due 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!
