Triple Play: Cost x ENX

Cost and his partner ENX have been relentless in their ongoing wheatpasting campaign. They continue to carve out new spots, especially with their highly visible jumbo posters, strategically pasted up high.

After a long stint in the studio preparing work for his well-deserved and well-received solo show in Chelsea last fall, it’s nice to see Elbow-Toe return to the streets, where he’s recently left us several new wheatpastes.

The last month has seen lots of new activity by old favorites. New wheatpastes have gone up in Brooklyn: Swoon and Over Under in Red Hook, ECB in Bushwick and Judith Supine in Williamsburg.

Elbow-Toe’s Street Cat Looks Back in Anger

It’s been a while since he last graced the streets of Brooklyn with new work, but Elbow-Toe has returned to form with a fabulous, large-scale, feline piece titled Look Back in Anger. Click here to see the original, cut-paper collage upon which this piece is based. Fans of his work will recall that he put up an equally impressive, large-scale dog almost two years ago to the day.

Veng Springs into Spring

bird wheat paste by Veng RWK

Spring has been in full effect these last few weeks, with lots of sun, rain, blooming flowers and chirping birds.  Veng RWK has taken and embraced these influences in his latest round of paste ups along the streets of Chelsea and Bushwick.  Lately he has also been playing around with a very different style, moving away from works heavily influence by the Dutch Masters and on to a more simplistic, comic-like look.  Veng must be really feeling the need for re-birth in the spring, as his blog also received a makeover earlier this month.

Bäst 2012

Although he’s never really gone for long, it’s been great to see Bäst hit New York City streets with renewed vigor recently. I’ve really been enjoying his latest work, especially these stencils.

His recent stencil work has also included a couple legal murals in Brooklyn, including one in Bushwick together with Aiko.

But what’s got me most excited, is this new crop of classic Bäst collages, wheatpasted to doors and walls in lower Manhattan…

Comical Stikmen

Walking around the vicinity of Williamsburg’s Pandemic Gallery, where Stikman recently had a show, I recently discovered a couple of new and amusing wheatpastes. This one reads:

Her: She wants that pile of sticks instead of you…?
Him: I told her to choose… him… or me.
