St. John x Vans “Smoking Whale” Mural at Pilgrim … Brooklyn

A sweet mural by St. John with support and in collaboration with Vans and Pilgrim at Pilgrim Surf Supply in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. We thought this was an image of a whale smoking a cigarette, but actually maybe it’s just a very large fish … smoking a cigarette. In any case, it’s a beautiful piece of commissioned artwork. We really like the aesthetic and color palette. It’s a nice, warm spot of brightness on yet another dreary, frigid winter afternoon in New York.

Street Art … “Curb Your Ego” Sign in Brooklyn

20140305-170445.jpg

“Curb Your Ego” strikes this stretch of wall in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. It’s a cheeky piece of street art playing on the usual visual grammar of municipal street signage, and it never fails to amuse, especially when placed near an art gallery. 🙂

In Brooklyn … Street Art by Artist Judith Supine

Some new photos of fresh street art by artist Judith Supine on Wythe Street in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. We haven’t seen much from Supine in downtown Manhattan the past couple of years, so it’s really great to stumble upon this artwork in Billyburg.

In Brooklyn … Skewville’s “BKLYN FLAVOR” Mural by Night …

20131002-164323.jpg

The artists and brothers duo that are Skewville are known for their use of striking colors, bold and large block lettering, and faux facades like cartoony trompe l’oeil. In the heart of Brooklyn’s scenic waterfront neighborhood of DUMBO and its post-industrial urban landscape of former factories, massive lofts, rail lines and cobblestone streets (and occasional abandoned furniture), the Skewville brothers have painted a block of old-school storefronts on a building under the Manhattan Bridge. Check out this Adhoc video interview with the artists.

In New York … Massive “Grampa” Poster by Fumero in SoHo

20130925-140100.jpg

The street art of the prolific New York artist Fumero is a reliable presence on the landscapes of downtown Manhattan and Brooklyn. His series of “Grampa” illustrations are rendered and wheat-pasted in various sizes, colors and styles, but rarely as large as this new, giant line-drawing “wheatie” that just went up on a wall at the corner of Crosby and Prince streets in SoHo.

Massive “Brooklyn” Graffiti Mural by ATOM

We caught artist Atom Rodriguez working on another of his many massive graffiti-art murals that dominate the buildings around the Kent Street industrial area near the waterfront between Williamsburg and Greenpoint, in Brooklyn. This one aptly enough is called “Brooklyn” and was still a work in progress when we ran into Atom early Thursday morning.
