Walking on Street Art in Brooklyn

Street Art in DUMBO Brooklyn

It’s no secret how obsessed I am with street art. As I mentioned in my About page, I’d rather go hunting for it any day than head over to an art museum. That’s not to say that I won’t step foot inside the museum; I would just choose to spend more time ogling over those bad boys down the alley somewhere, on the walls of some building, or more recently, on the asphalt in DUMBO, Brooklyn.

I cherish and I admire them more for one reason: they’re not permanent. It could be there one month, and gone soon after that.

The average person who’s too busy taking photos of DUMBO’s beautiful surroundings can easily miss this beloved street art by our own Brooklyn artist David Ellis on “the triangle” last week. Though it’s a huge mural, it’s also on the asphalt. To capture the entire installation I had to stand on the chairs and barricades surrounding this triangle section.

    I like street art, too. I think I’m starting to recognize the work of some famous street artists. It’s exciting– especially when you just stumble upon it.

    Super pics!! I’ve been to the DUMBO area, and obviously overlooked the full details of this street art. I have to take a walk through, again. Thanks for sharing Antoine.

      Thanks Jerneal! Yeah those can be easily missed since DUMBO has beautiful surroundings around. Most people tend to look up, not down. I just happen to be sitting on one of those chairs waiting for a friend.
