loisaida street art

When I made wheat paste glue from scratch last week to make venetian plaster, I was reminded of the street posters that were the way that local artists and musicians advertised before email became the norm. Friends would call for assistance and we would hit the streets at night armed with posters,  a bucket of wheat paste and a brush. We called it scumming. The messages change but the street poster will never die.

Posters recently seen in Loisaida, New York.
