The Bushwick Collective is once again home to a range of first-rate local and global artists, as it readies for its fourth annual block party. Here are a few more images we’ve recently captured:
New Zealand-based Owen Dippie
UK’s The Toasters
Mexican native Werc and Peruvian native Gera Luz
MCA with Skize
The legendary Ghost, RIS
The Block Party, sponsored by Kobra Paint takes place tomorrow, Saturday, at Saint Nicholas Avenue and Troutman Street right off the Jefferson stop on the L line.
And — in addition to the art — there will be much more!

Under the leadership of the indefatigable Jonathan “Meres” Cohen, Long Island City’s 5Pointz has evolved into a first-rate open-air street art museum. Even with the threat of closure looming, its huge walls remain a canvas for artists who travel to NYC from across the globe. Here’s a small sampling of their contributions to this mecca of aerosol art:
