Street Finds

Artist Gio

Found this street art while walking around in Fort Greene, Brooklyn near the Brooklyn Academy of Music . I have decided one category that I am going to try to post more of is something that I am going to call street finds. Living in New York City I have the opportunity to see a lot of pieces of art that are done by talent artist that just happen to use the world around them as their canvas. It is extremely inspiring to me and I hope that you enjoy it and the photographs that I take of the art.

Broken Or Put Back Together

So what do you think is this heart-broken or has it healed? When I saw this to me it looked like a broken heart that was put back together.

Street Art

Here are a few pieces of street art that I found in the Soho and Brooklyn areas of New York. Street art really inspires me and I find it to be an extremely creative way for people to express themselves. Following other mediums of art that I am not good at allows me to understand different perspective on visual arts and only helps me to learn and grow towards my goals.

Street Inspiration

Walking around sometimes you just happen upon pieces that inspire you. In this collection you will see one photograph that a homeless man in Brooklyn writes inspirational messages on. A Tibetan prayer flay stock in a sign poll I do not know if it was intentional, but even if someone took the time to pick it up to show respect that is inspiring. And a street installation that shows you can find are anywhere.

I really enjoy the creativity of street art and some of the tags that I find in the Brooklyn Area really stick out to me. I also like when you can tell that the piece has been there for a while and is starting to fade away. Every time I find a piece on the street that stands out to me my mind starts to wonder and I like to think about who put it there why they choose this piece and what point are they trying to convey if any point at all. Take a look and I hope that you enjoy and can come up with some of your own stories and reasons why someone made this piece. The Streets are the Urban Museum
