Bushwick Street Art Walk - PHOTOBLOG
ADDITIONAL CONTRIBUTORS BTR Editorial

Since the 1970s, the walls of New York City have been brought to life by the vibrant works of street artists from across the globe. Brooklyn is home to a variety of these talented and unknown artists.

For only $20, New York City visitors and residents are invited to participate in the street art walk. The tour begins at 2:30 in Willamsburg every Saturday, or in Bushwick every Sunday. BTR had the opportunity of joining guide David Meade on the street art walk this past Sunday in Bushwick.

Meade, an ex-grafter born and raised in the Bronx, dispels his knowledgeable history of street art, and its prolific evolutions, during the course of a 2-hour long walking tour. Meade’s tour exposes the city as a personal gallery for street artists, as participants learn to identify the diverse array of mediums such as paste ups, stencils, murals, stickers, left object, and graffiti.

Below is a preview of a few of the amazing works that can be seen on the tour.
