Stunning new Wheatpaste works by Brooklyn Street Artist Swoon

We were in New York for a few days before we headed up to Montreal, Canada for this year's edition of the Mural Festival. As big fans of New York-based street artist Swoons' work it was great to discover some large-scale wheat-pasted works of hers while we were in Red Hook in Brooklyn. We have already featured some images we took of these Swoon piece on the Hookedblog site here.

Having returned to New York from Montreal on route back to London it would appear luck was once again on our side as we were made aware through Instagram that artist Swoon had returned to hit the streets of Brooklyn, New York with a number of new large-scale wheat paste-ups while we were in Montreal.

Last week we set out to track down some of these new street artworks pasted up on walls deep in Brooklyn, spending a number of hours on the subways and buses plus a lot of walking, close to 10 miles to be exact trying to track down these new pieces across the borough.

But the effort was most certainly worth it on the discovery of each of the four beautiful wheat-pasted paper works we got to enjoy. Swoon never ceases to blow us away with her work and the new pieces some of which must be close to several feet in height were no exception. 

Each placed in suitable locations, the pieces got more elaborate throughout the day starting off with hand-painted wheat paste-ups right up to delicate multi-layered paper cut pieces pasted over a large-scale hand-painted wheat paste-up. Check out some of the images we captured on our Brooklyn adventure and we hope you enjoy these new street artworks as much as we do.
