Robot Will Kill’s Veng has been working around the clock to complete a new, block-long mural in time for this weekend’s Bushwick Open Studios. On Saturday, Vandevoort Place by Factory Fresh will be shut to traffic and transformed into Bushwick Art Park, a one-day sculpture garden featuring works by Bast, Leon Reid IV, Specter, Skewville, Ben Godward, Infinity, Garry Nichols, Tyrome Tripoli and El Celso.
Factory Fresh also celebrates its third anniversary on Saturday – congrats, Ali and Ad! – with the opening of a new show co-curated with Jason Andrew. Surrealism includes works by Jim Avignon, Kevin Curran, Ryan Michael Ford, Paul D’Agostino, Jake Genen, Ben Godward, Tamara Gonzales, Andrew Hurst, Amy Lincoln, Rebecca Litt, Francesco Longnecker, Norman Jabaut, J.P. Marin, Brooke Moyse, Garry Nichols, Patricia Satterlee, Pufferella, Kevin Regan, Skewville, John Sunderland, Sweet Toof, Tyrome Tripoli, Marjorie Van Cura and Veng.
Veng will further demonstrate his painting skills at the nearby Curbs & Stoops Active Space, where he and Nathan Pickett will be live painting. The space also opens a group show, Stay Gold, featuring Don Pablo Pedro, Nathan Pickett, QRST, Quel Beast, and Vahge.
