Every day, after my yoga practice, I walk a different route home, if only to uncover something new about Williamsburg.
Ever since visiting Barcelona this year, I’ve been taken with street art. The Barcelona-based fashion brand, Desigual, even takes inspiration from it – their T-shirts and sweaters and logo and display windows pay testament to the art form. But, I digress.
I’d never paid much attention to street art and graffiti when I moved to Brooklyn, but I seek it out on my everyday strolls. Or maybe I’m more conscious of it because it is top of mind. Some neighbourhoods are subject to “clean up” initiatives, but Williamsburg feels like an open-art gallery where graffiti, stencil drawings, posters, sidewalk art, stickers and murals are part of its landscape. I wonder if street art inspires people to get tattoos?
