The third part of Charm City Streets’ illustrated report on the 7th Annual Bushwick Collective Block Party provides you behind-the-scene coverage of an additional 11 artists:
As they have done for several years now, New York artists Logan Hicks and Joe Iurato created an exciting collaborative stenciled mural for the Bushwick Collective Block Party. Their young pirate is sure to catch your eye and spark fond memories of childhood adventures.
Nearby, eight year-old Lola the Illustrator painted a self-portrait for this year’s event.
On Wyckoff Avenue across from the Hana Natural Market, the well-respected Brooklyn graffiti writer Hoacs created a new piece. His lines are clean and sharp, his fades are seamless, and his lettering style is dope.
Next to Hoacs was the abstract mural Hope Flutters by Canadian (Toronto) artist Mr. Hydde. It is a striking piece. Take the time to read the background wording.
On the corner of Wyckoff Avenue and Starr Street was the mesmerizing mural Brooklyn artist Jeff Henriquez painted of his adorable little niece. It will be quite a pleasant surprise for her when she first sees it on a visit to Brooklyn later this summer.
New York muralist Love Notes painted a dazzling mural of Atabey, the supreme goddess of the Tainos, the people indigenous to the Caribbean in pre-Columbian times.
Graff writer Dek_2dx painted the intricate Yo 2DX Crew piece on Troutman Street.
La Femme Cheri painted two striking additions to her Welsh Doll series.
Just down Troutman Street from La Femme Cheri, in front of the music stage, Fubarbert and Bert_end2end featured a panda bear with artistic talent and a love for Bushwick.
Graff writer @ac2bsk painted a number of fashionista Teddy bears next to a striking thought-provoking Stop The Violence piece.
It was fascinating watching Argentinian artist Sonni at work. He jerry-rigged a regular paintbrush to the end of a roller pole and was experimenting with the effect. He incorporated the unexpected dripping paint lines into his artwork. The pole was a little cumbersome due to its long length, but the serendipitous end result looks as if planned that way.
Here follow the stunning creations from the individual artists, muralists, and writers Charm City Streets was unable to catch in action due to the sheer volume of activity.
