UR New York: The Art Of BasketballArt — By JGM Staff on December 6, 2010 at 4:37 pm
Brooklyn street artists 2ESAE and SKI have been killing the streets of NY for a while now, they have also formed a duo known as “UR New York“. The duo has arrived in Miami for art Art Basel after a long drive from NYC for their big opening at Billi Kid’s “Art of Basketball” show on December 2nd.
“Basically, instead of doing a time-lapse process showing the backboard being created we figured we would give an inside look into the process of making it in our studio. There was a lot of thought that went into it, considering that this project really hit home to us,” says Mike Baca (AKA 2ESAE) as he describes the way the story unfolds. In the video, both Baca and his art partner Fernando Romero (AKA SKI) lay down multiple layers of screens and paint to build their piece.
