Brooklyn Street Art

by Sanctified Brother

I saw this amazing example of Brooklyn street art today on Lafayette Avenue, near the C train station. It reminded me or a cross between ancient woodcuts and Tom Feelings’ paintings for some reason. I don’t know who the artist is or when it was commissioned, however it appears to be from a talented artist and have been there for a while.

There’s an earthy, worn texture to the art, exaggerated because it’s affixed to the side of a brownstone’s steps. The artwork is convincingly out of place affixed to the brownstone and that odd juxtaposition adds to the uniqueness of the work.
