Charm City Streets walked miles and miles each day last week seeking out recent and new-to-me murals in and around Brooklyn.
Eight years ago, residents of Welling Court in the Astoria neighborhood of New York City joined forces with the Ad Hoc Art Gallery to enhance their small community through public art. From its humble beginning, this annual event has mushroomed into a dazzling array of artwork created by a host of prominent muralists, street artists and graffiti writers … both from around the corner and the globe. The 2017 Welling Court Mural Project took place Saturday, June 10th.
While touring Brooklyn over the past several years, it has always been a visual delight to encounter artwork by graffiti writer/artist Trace. As you can see below, his artwork is eye-catching and intriguing. The continual change-up in his style is the fundamental reason his artwork garners wide interest.
From May 17th through June 10th, Pixel Pancho has a group show at HG Contemporary Gallery in Chelsea with fellow artists Aiko, Jay West, Olek, Retna, and Swoon.
He found time to create a fascinating new mural atop an old diner on the corner of 22nd Street and 10th Avenue in Chelsea.

The weather forecast called for mild temperatures and sunny skies, so Charm City Streets took off to spend a few days in Brooklyn. Touring the streets of Bushwick and East Williamsburg is always a treat. Colorful murals, fascinating wheatpastes, and kewl graffiti covered many walls.
Two years ago, JMZ Walls began. It shares a similar belief with The Bushwick Collective, that is, street art has a positive influence on a neighborhood and benefits both local community members and tourists alike.
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.
