Bushwick Block Party this Saturday

AllCityBlockParty

Factory Fresh and All City launch an ambitious effort to revitalize a much-neglected Bushwick block this Saturday, November 20th, starting at 2:00PM. Nevermind the garbage, I’ve witnessed more burnt out cars on Vandervoort Place than I care to remember. I welcome the idea of transforming this alleyway into Bushwick Art Park. Brooklyn artists Chris Stain, Gaia, Skewville, Imminent Disaster and others plus special guests Tek33 and Dscreet of London’s Burning Candy crew will give the project a jumpstart by painting a 200 foot long wall. See Skewville’s vision for the block in the slideshow below:

Come support the project, see great art being made, drink beer, eat tacos …

Sweet Action

U.K. artist Sweet Toof of Burning Candy (Cept, Cyclops, Dscreet, Gold Peg, LL Brainwashed, Mighty Mo, Rowdy, Sweet Toof and Tek33) has been a busy man as of late. With his crew’s exhibition just closing at London’s High Roller Society, their recent box set of prints release, and production now in motion for their film Dots, Sweet Toof has still found time to step foot in NYC this week. Since kicking things off with his participation in Ad Hoc Arts’ fantastic Welling Court Mural Project in Queens, he has made his way to the streets – and hopefully the rooftops – of Brooklyn.
