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.

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.
Last week, Cost completed his mural on the exterior of a garage at Bushwick’s Five Points.
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.
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…

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.
And then there’s He’s Looking for People Who Like to Draw…
Brooklyn’s own Faile are the latest to embellish the curated wall at the intersection of Houston and the Bowery. As noted by the L Magazine yesterday, this marks the duo’s first, large-scale, outdoor installation in Manhattan since pasting the facade of 11 Spring five years ago.
NohJ Coley continues with his seemingly ceaseless drive to bring his work to the streets, from Los Angeles for BSA’s “Street Art Saved My Life”, to Brooklyn, then off to Albany for the Living Walls Festival, and finally back to Brooklyn once again. His latest large-scale works of latex on craft paper appear to be exploring family issues and dynamics, from home life to the obligatory family vacation.
