East New York

Some of the most intriiguing walls in town can be found on Atlantic Avenue and Hinsdate Street — directly off the L train’s Atlntic Avenue stop — in East New York.  It is where graffiti writers and street artists convened this past weekend in the spirit of unity. Featured above is old school Uptown/Bronx writer Clyde adjacent to fellow Ex Vandals’ member Will Power. What follows are several images I captured earlier this week:

Keep posted to our Instagram for more images of graffiti and street art that surfaced last weekend in East New York. And, reports Will Power, we can look forward to a new set of walls — of both graffiti and street art — next month in the same location.

Directly off the Broadway-Junction subway station — on the borderline between East New York and Brownsville — are some of NYC’s most exhilarating graffiti walls. Here are a few more images captured this past week of the murals fashioned by both locals and out-of-towners.

Just one block off the MTA Broadway-Junction station in East New York, Brooklyn are some of NYC’s most intriguing walls. Here’s a sampling of what I captured earlier this week in the bright sun:

The vision of Rez and Bugn ABK, a huge wall off the Broadway-Junction subway line in East New York has recently been transformed into a magical mural featuring elements of graffiti, traditional portraiture and collage. Here are some images we captured last week:

“We loved painting in this neighborhood,” reports Bugn. “We had lots of interaction with the folks who live here, and it was great to paint where folks appreciated us. This is just the beginning!”  As to the choice of figures portrayed – Martin Luther King, Jr., Jackie Robinson and Abe Lincoln – Bugn had the following to say: “We’re not kids anymore. We put our heavy hitters up. These are the people who inspired us as we were growing up. Women are on the way!”
