Street Art // Thursday, June 14, 2012
Built by Minister Horace Burgess, yes that’s right, a minister/very creative and motivated carpenter built this 100ft treehouse in Crossville, Tennessee.  It took around 14 years to finish without any drawn out plans, aka blueprints.   It has a spacious 10,000 square feet of room inside and the rent is most likely cheaper than your $1200 studio in the big ol’ city.  Jealous.

Nychos in Brooklyn

Street Art // Wednesday, June 13, 2012
Is that an Iron Maiden shirt Nychos is wearing there?  We can see how his work is influenced by Derek Riggs who created all the epic covers for the English heavy metal band.  This new skull-splitting piece is on a roof in Brooklyn and will surely take someone off guard, if not give them nightmares.
