We caught up with Bushwick resident Daniel Weintraub aka Halopigg last month(Previously on Hookedblog) who was kind enough to take some time to bring us on a quick tour of his neighbourhood during our New York visit.
While he was showing us some of the new mural additions painted in the run up to the Bushwhack Collective's annual block party we ran into artists Logan Hicks and Joe Iurato working on a large scale multi layered collaborative stencil piece. When we caught up with the two artists they were spraying the last few layers to complete this nautical themed piece. According to Logan the nautical flags in the mural spell out the mariner’s proverb, "No matter how big the sea may be, sometimes two ships meet" and is repeated throughout the piece. We have included some work in progress images below as well as the completed wall.
The completed “Seafaring Dream” Mural by Logan Hicks and Joe Iurato.
Since we shot the completed wall it would appear the work has been since tagged over, but from pictures we have seen online it looks like Logan has returned to make some repairs to the mural which you can see on the corner of Troutman and St. Nicholas Ave, Brooklyn.
