The J, M and Z metro lines run on elevated tracks above Broadway in Brooklyn’s Bushwick neighborhood. Walking along Broadway and its side streets last month, Charm City Streets encountered a collection of fascinating murals and dope graffiti.
This open air art gallery started several years ago thanks to the efforts of JMZ Walls, whose homepage banner proclaims JMZ Walls – making the JMZ lines more colorful one wall, one gate, one space at a time. Artists come from around the block, across the country, and the four corners of the world to paint here.
During its visit, Charm City Streets was fortunate to happen upon several artists and writers at work for JMZ Walls. For two days Fumeroism was busy recreating The Hulk on Jefferson Street at Broadway.
On Myrtle Avenue just below Jefferson Street, Reme821 was at work.
Along this block on Myrtle Avenue Charm City Streets also found:
Several blocks north at Lin’s Laundromat on Park Street, there was an end-to-end wall going up by Cool Card, Trans 1, and Noir (@badnewzcard; @trans1graffiti; @noir_bt).
Additional murals and graff pieces to see at Lin’s included:
Last but not least, here follow art pieces Charm City Streets found elsewhere nearby.
