It’s been plenty of time since my last Brooklyn street art post, don’t you think? This second feature on the Bushwick Collective has my husband Andy’s photos, and focus mostly on scale. With such enormous canvases as multi-story city buildings, these talented street artists are able to paint as large or small as their imagination takes them.
This goat piece is among my top 5 favorites:
Some pieces I like just for how colorful they are:
Some are fun and campy:
This one even incorporated fabric art!
And the largest ones:
And walking around the corner, the peace sign from another perspective:
I’d love to hear what your favorites are! Street art is one of those mediums that reaches so many people, simply by virtue of its accessibility. I understand how some people might have issue with graffiti on historic buildings, but the building and business owners here in Bushwick are all in on the project. It benefits everyone by making Bushwick an arts attraction in its own right and drawing in visitors that otherwise wouldn’t have been there.
Thank you to curator Joe Ficalora and all the street artists who have contributed to the Bushwick Collective: you’ve made a gray and brown corner of Brooklyn a much more cheerful place.
Today is the first day of the Blogging from A to Z April Challenge! I’ve never done a blog every day challenge before, so I’m approaching this with some trepidation. Thanks to Kate at Another Clean Slate for the inspiration. My theme for day one was Art 🙂 Stay tuned for a B post tomorrow!
