When Joe Ficalora thought of making the warehouse addled, home to grungy folks, and some hipsters, Bushwick into a haven of street art and graffiti he wasn’t looking to be another Banksy. No, he just wanted to shape up his neighbourhood into something less industrial and something more artsy. Today The Bushwick Collective is full of colourful murals that talk about corruption, activism, disparity, gender, and above all creativity! Not that we needed another reason to visit the mighty New York City, but this Bushwick locale begets a visit. ASAP. If you think we are exaggerating, just scroll through!

Edition 6 of the Iurato Boys Excited to share the 2018 installment of this very special piece at @thebushwickcollective painted by @joeiurato x @loganhicksny . It all started when @joeiurato painted the infamous #NEVERLETGO piece at @thebushwickcollective . And every year after that he and @loganhicksny come thru to create a new installation at @thebushwickcollective . It’s been an honor and a privilege to watch his kids grow up at the collective thru his art. Aside from @joeiurato & @loganhicksny being dedicated , talented , hardworking artists , they are equally devoted to their kids… thank you both for all the inspiration and leadership ! #bushwickcollective #2018thebushwickcollective Photo By @joeiurato
