As much as I enjoy walking around world class cities like Montreal and Tokyo and Barcelona, I am lucky to have one right nearby that I can wander about and that is New York City. Meeting a traveling buddy of mine from Montreal whom I have written about in these pages (Ric), we proceeded to wander about here and there to see what street art we would find in Brooklyn and we weren’t dissapointed!
Bushwick is a popular area of Brooklyn with street art and the post pick above was done by a member of the 2DX crew called 2sneksual. It is next to his tagline but I zoomed in a bit to get his wizard. So cool. This was on a wharehouse wall on Vandervoort Place. There are crews all around New York who put their tag lines on blank walls as well as individual artists who are “commissioned” so to speak to work on certain walls with full permission.
On the same street was a piece that was tagged over but I would have loved to see it in its fullness. This eagle is impressive! I’m not sure who did the work!
The piece below was done by Yok & Sheryo, a duo that has gotten street art fame worldwide. Sheryo, a Singaporean born artist and Yok Australian born, did this piece also on the same short street Vandervoort Place in Bushwick, Brooklyn. (read a bit).
This next one outside of a popular cafe right on the border of Bushwick needs a touch up but I definitely appreciate the work that went into it!
Next up is the famous wall outside of a beloved Pizza place in Brooklyn and all of New York for that matter. Roberta’s (read a bit). The beer crushing pizza eating hungry monster is known and it was done by respected local artist L’Amour Supreme. (read a bit).

We learned a bit about street art in the Bushwick area and I am still compiling some pics and info for the next part of this post. This last artwork for today has me perplexed because I can’t for the life of me remember where I snapped the photo. Hopefully I can find out who did it and what street I was on..but it was impressive nonetheless.
Thanks for stopping by today and if you are in New York and want to get out of Manhattan, Brooklyn has art food and more. Don’t sleep on it. As always, leave a comment below!!
Until next time….. Thomas G.
