BROOKLYN STREET ART – GRAFFITI 2

Headlining today’s post … Ribs on conga drums

The first few snowflakes have begun to fall in Baltimore, and outdoors the scene is calm and bright. That will soon change … for the worse. Weather forecasters say Old Man Winter is hell-bent on walloping the Mid-Atlantic with a wicked winter storm that will leave the area snowbound and as cold as ice. Maryland and surrounding states have already declared a state of emergency. Before hunkering down for the long wintry weekend, Charm City Streets shares with you the remaining graffiti pieces it encountered during visits to Brooklyn in 2015. Hopefully, this art display will bring a welcome splash of color and delight to the drab and dreary weekend ahead.

First up is a large collaborative piece by artists BG183, Bio, Clark, Crash, Jew, Nicer, Ribs, Yes1, and Zimad. In early summer last year, they joined creative forces to design, form, and paint the Puerto Rico wall. The artwork wrapped around the building on the corner of White and Moore Streets in Bushwick for a length close to 100 feet. Here you can see the wall still looked remarkable when Charm City Streets toured Brooklyn two months later.
