BEAU is an NYC street artist who has been making quite a name for himself, in fact, he's handwritten it across the entire city, four letters at a time. A lot of his work is quick and light, brining a smile to passerby when they see a couch tagged up with BEAU in the Lower East side or a fill-in in a super visible spot. But BEAU also creates in the studio. We caught up with the latest addition to NYC's landscape to get a look at some of his work and hear about his process, from fucking around in the streets to longer form projects, to walking into a Mr. Brainwash show and stencilling one of the guy's works. Check out a collection of BEAU's work and his interview by clicking on the arrows in the above slideshow.
