Street Art in Bushwick
With the Bushwick Collective Block Party happening this weekend (Click Here for more info on that), it felt like the perfect time to finally drop this. It’s virtually impossible to walk through the streets of Bushwick (Brooklyn, NY.) without bumping into some amazing pieces of artwork spray painted on Rooftops, Walls of Bodegas, Do Not Enter barricades, etc. It’s everywhere!
[Note: One of the best views for hidden pieces, is on the Manhattan Bound J Train from Broadway Junction and beyond.]
Although it’s usually considered ‘illegal‘ to cover public property with Graffiti, J M Z Walls, a non for profit collective has been actively working to change that and bring art to ALL local pedestrians. The name comes from the trains (The J, M & Z obviously) that run along the path of many of these walls daily. With their help along with many other local organizations such as The Bushwick Collective & Dodworth Street Mural, they have all participated in helping brighten up your daily work commute, or like me, spending your Saturday afternoon wandering the neighborhood.
During my small weekend excursion, I stopped at a certain piece only to be greeted by the actual artist behind it (I promise we didn’t plan it or anything.) Meet the lovely Lexi Bella. She was nice enough to not only introduce herself but do me the honor of posing with her work for a photo. Hey Lexi!

Eitherway, take a moment out of the day to check out some of the work below. My hats off to ALL of the artists. Hope to meet you guys!
