As the Bushwick Collective readies for its 11th Annual Block Party, a first-rate array of artists from near and far have been busy at work around Troutman and St Nicholas Avenues and its surrounding blocks. Pictured above is the Dutch artist David Louf aka Mr. June working on a small section of his new huge, hugely impressive mural. Several more images of newly-fashioned murals captured in the rain yesterday evening follow:
The distinctly skilled Italian artist Ligama, segment of huge stunning mural
The wonderfully talented Milan-based Mr. Blob at work on a small segment of his huge tantalizing mural
The New York-based highly versatile visual artist Cody James
Pittsburg-based artist Ashley Hodder, close-up from wonderfully ravishing mural
And — on a lighter note — West Coast based aritst James Smith aka 220.127.116.11 completing his delightfully playful mural
You can view all of the murals — including many by local artists — this Saturday, June 4 at the Bushwick Collective Annual Block Party, while enjoying performances by KRS ONE , STATIK SELEKTAH & FRIENDS, NEMS, TERMANOLOGY, POSITIVE K, & 30 other talents.
