JMZ WALLS, BROOKLYN

Headlining today’s post … BKFoxx for JMZ Walls

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.

The Hulk begins to take shape.
