Did you ever wonder walking around NYC who the artists is who paints the bases of all the lamp posts? Or did you pick up the first issue of Sold Magazine! and wonder who the brains were behind the free paper? Well the answer to both is Brooklyn based street artist BD White. With the release of issue 2 of Sold Magazine! this Friday April 29th I caught up with the busy artist to discuss his work, the magazine, and being punked by COST.
BD, tell the readers a little bit about your self, your art, and how Sold Magazine came about?
We’ve got CB23 and Foxxface showing us how to make wheat paste in a step by step process. We talked to Appleton about his campaign to raise diabetic awareness through his wheat pastes of insulin vials on the street. And we followed Adam Dare one night as he took us around the East Village pasting up his iconic bunnies. Not to mention the travel section where Che Anderson and Bri Turner took us to POW WOW Hawaii!
We’ve got the launch of Issue 2 on Friday, April 29th at Studio Kraut in Manhattan. We’re sponsored by Effen Vodka so it’s going to be a great time! We’re doing a Launch Party/Art Show for each issue when they come out, showcasing the works of the artists that appear in the issue. And the third issue will be out in late July. We’ve also just opened our online gallery so people who were not able to attend the show will still have a chance to be able to buy an original piece of art or an exclusive print.
