GLOBAL WARMING AND SMOKIN’-HOT GRAFFITI

Headlining today’s post … Rath by @heavylox

Climate scientists have concluded global warming, if left unchecked, will cause sea levels to rise. Verifiable scientific data indicates rising sea levels would inundate large areas of New York City and the boroughs by the turn of the century.

In a recent peer reviewed article in Squirrelly Scientific Amurican, scientists concerned about graffiti’s impact on global warming requested the public’s assistance with their investigation. Alarmed by all the dire warnings, Charm City Streets submitted documentation to these scientists. You need not file a Freedom of Information Act request to review this documentation. Charm City Streets now openly shares its information with you.

Headlining today’s post … Nanny’s Kitchen, a mural Fumeroism created at Art Basel 2016

During Art Basel 2016, Fumeroism created Nanny’s Kitchen and populated it with the vibrant, multi-colored expressionistic characters for which he is known. The mural portrays an earlier time in his life when family members would gather around the kitchen table to talk, reminisce, and simply enjoy each other’s company. Nanny’s Kitchen now takes its place in Fumero’s The Table Series, a body of paintings that inspired his Table Series logo.

Every year since then, Ad Hoc Art invites artists from far and wide to help turn the neighborhood into an open-air art gallery. Their annual block party in June is a celebrated event.

Centered around the Myrtle Avenue-Broadway Station (which the J, M and Z subway lines share), you will find an open air gallery of rich, imaginative murals created by prominent artists from Brooklyn and the four corners of the globe.
