The Bushwick Collective was founded by Bushwick resident Joe Ficalora. Ficalora gets local artists like Jins, Mr. Nerds and Minus as well as international artists to come to Brooklyn to beautify the buildings with free street art. Artists from as far away as Germany, Chile and Sweden have taken part.
The collective recently gained non-profit status , partnering with Mana Urban Arts in Florida, and will be a part of Art Basel in Miami December 3-5.
If you’d like to check out the Bushwick Collective artwork, a good place to begin your tour is Wykoff and Troutman Streets.
