Street Art in Bushwick [ Part 2 ]


On the last installment of Bushwick Street Art, I showed you a lot of work found via the JMZ Walls Collective. But, as I also mentioned, there are other groups keep things vibrant around the Borough.

Enter the Bushwick Art Collective. Started accidentally by┬áJoseph Ficalora, the project┬ásort’ve came into fruition after Ficalora┬ábegan inviting artists to paint walls within the area as long as they followed a few simple rules:

1. Nothing offensive to children, women or the local businesses walls they were allowed to paint on.
2. No politics.
3. No one is paid for the work. The artists donate their own supplies and time, and the building owners donate their wall space.

From there, it took off to what you see today. Artists from all over the world have made their way to Bushwick for the chance to showcase their work on a wall within the city. Interested in checking it out? Head on over to Troutman Street and St. Nicholas Avenue. Or for those familiar with the L line, get off on Jefferson St. and simply walk around. The pieces are everywhere. Enjoy the photos!

Notorious B.I.G: 20 Years Art Exhibit

“’cause I went from negative to positive and it’s all…good.”

It’s been 20 years (time flies right?) since Christopher Wallace was slain in L.A. To celebrate┬áthe life and times of the legendary MC, Brooklyn’s own Bishop Gallery held an art show from 4/10-4/12 showcasing the work of several artists paying their respects to Frank White. There were some really great pieces there. If you weren’t able to make it, check out a few of the photos below.

The Face Challenge

One of my NYE resolutions was to draw more, so I challenged myself to draw 1 portrait a day for all of January. I didn’t quite pull it off (21 total), but these were a few of my favorites. Every 4 block of sketches shows improvement. It’s funny how a little bit of practice (WE TALKIN BOUT PR-) goes a long way. This wasn’t a personal challenge either. Other artists join in on twitter. Thanks to everyone who participated. I added their names below along with the final 4 sketches and a link to view everyone’s work.
