This past weekend, Joe Ficalora of The Bushwick Collective invited world renowned graffiti artists Nychos and Smithe to our neighborhood. The two collaborated for the first time together on a mural at the Wyckoff and Troutman intersection in Bushwick. For the uninformed, Nychos hails from Austria and Smithe, from Mexico. These are two of their respective country's best street artists and illustrators. I had a chance to capture them in action as they tag teamed all afternoon on this wall(see below). Many fans, fellow artists - Caroline Liu from Chicago, and curious passerbys dropped in for a peek at their work throughout the afternoon. If you missed it, you can pop into the neighborhood to view the finished piece anytime. You can also stop by the Mighty Tanaka art gallery in DUMBO later tonight from 6-9pm, to catch Nychos' first New York City exhibit opening, Silly Slicesophy.
