Home to graffiti and street art Mecca 5Points, LIC also hosts a number of first-rate pieces on public spaces, generally devoid of street art. Here are a few pieces that we recently came upon.
Queens native Alice Mizrachi with two of her signature characters found throughout her borough. Her pieces also surface up in the Bronx and in Brooklyn.
Gaia and Jaz
Baltimore-based Gaia and Buenos Aires-based Jaz collaborated on this wall. We found this piece in an abandoned old dump, testament that in LIC one never knows what one what might find!
Originally from NYC, but based in Baltimore the last few years, Gaia returns here regularly. This piece is on Vernon Boulevard.
Cern and Jaz
This is one of two NYC collaborations between Cern and Jaz. Queens-native Cern has painted extensively in South America.
