HOTTEA Transforms Williamsburg bridge walkway into Rainbow tunnel

Street Art // Friday, September 06, 2013
The pedestrian walkway along the Williamsburg Bridge in New York was transformed into a tunnel-like rainbow experience courtesy of Minneapolis artist, HOTTEA. The installation which covers a large portion of the beginning of the Brooklyn side, consists of over 2000 strands of yarn and took over 11 hours to install with the help of assistants. Our predictions are that “Rituals” will likely remain until the city takes it upon themselves to remove it or some drunk thinks it’s amusing to mess it up, both plausible outcomes relevent to that location.

Nunca takes on the Paparazzi in Los Angeles

Street Art // Wednesday, September 04, 2013
In conjunction with the Tarfest Music and Art Festival in Los Angeles, Brazilian artist, Nunca, painted a lengthy mural wrapping around a corner of the popular La Brea Street. The artists chose to paint the paparazzi as they literally corner a woman while she attempts to block their photographic attack. Obviously this is an appropriate comment on the absurd celebrity culture that exists in Los Angeles.

2 new walls from Escif

Street Art // Tuesday, September 03, 2013
Juxtapoz favorite Escif continues his simplistic and thoughtful image application in the streets, this time in the city of Barcelona. The artist painted to very different pieces, both equally engaging. One shows the image of a painter covering a 50% on an easel entitled “Special Offer,” while the other is the image of a secret staircase made to look as if it is being propped open with a stick, accompanied with the words “Underground.”
