Black and White Bushwick

I posted a few days ago about my visit to The Bushwick Collective in Brooklyn, NY.

I’m always drawn to the simplicity of black and white art. Here are a few of my favorites, one of which is unattributed so if you recognize the artist, let me know in the comments and I’ll tag them:

Audrey with a selfie stick instead of a cigarette holder. Updated for the millennium but possibly equally as destructive?

I’ll do one more post at the end of this week and post other colorful bits and pieces from this great gallery.

WRDSMTH in Chicago

WRDSMTH in Chicago – Hubbard Street Mural Project

I love this guy. I discovered him on Instagram initially and have followed him for months.┬áHis technique combines a stenciled vintage typewriter with a short inspirational message “typed” on a wheat paste sheet. Simple, straightforward and striking. All the best S’s.

WRDSMTH In Chicago – lululemon on Southport

Until recently I’d only seen his work online because he’s based in LA. However, in the week I’ve been here in Chicago, I’ve found a number of his pieces around town.

Take a look at some of his Chicago work below and read this Hustle & Deal Flow interview if you want a bit more of his background.
