Cool Street Art in Bushwick, Brooklyn! (Pt. #1)

Wizard in Brooklyn by 2sneksual of the 2DX Crew.

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!

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.

These two “Paris” looking ladies on a wall is one I can’t remember what street I found it on.

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.

    1. No problem. A city like NYC is full of every kind of artist imaginable from tattoos to street aret to classic paintings at the Metropolitan museum! There is always something that can be inspiring! thanks for stopping by!

  2. It’s a great place to visit for art lovers like me. Thanks for sharing those mesmerizing art works here. I really appreciate their creativity.
    Once I’m in Brooklyn I would like to visit this place!

    1. There is so much great street art in Bushwick, Brooklyn! I am writing another post to show more and talk more about it! I will drop a message if you are interested when I post. I hope you get the chance to actually go! Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Thank you for such a great post. The city of Brooklyn seems to have some cool areas. I only sees such nice streets on movies and I hope to visit them one day. I also like how you added a map at the end of the post. I can really see now how far I am from Brooklyn. Anyway, thank you for all the great and detailed information.

    1. There are many cool areas in NYC. Each burrough has many smaller communities that have their own style and culture. At least for now…gentrification is starting to strip away the differences in areas and morph them into the same thing everywhere but until that is done, take a chance and see what you can if you have the oppurtunity! Thanks for stopping by!

  4. I just love street art. It gives life to a dull city. Even if your city has nothing interesting, a good street artist will give life to the empty blocks, painting fantastical murals and drawing tourists to the city in the process. I appreciate the images. They show the potential for any depressed city.

    I do have a question though. Does anyone offer any tours of the Bushwick street art? I would love to learn more about the murals and paintings in person.

    Thank you for sharing and I hope you make it a great day!
