NEW MURALS!!! Come find us.

Brightening our city one artwork at a time!

Molly and I recently completed some new murals in Brooklyn. Why not go for a scroll and come see them in person?

First stop: the much beloved Quimby’s NYC Bookstore in Brooklyn. No boring books allowed!!! Stop in for the best selection of alternative press, zines, records and various curiosities.

The process begins. It always attracts lots of attention.

This construction guy knew the Arabic poem in Molly’s mural. Everyone likes to stop and ask questions when you’re putting a mural up.

the characters in the mural demand justice and more color in the world with fists in the air in solidarity
The people demand color!

Our supervisor looks on curiously. Does she approve of her portrait? I think so.

The end result… a more beautiful world!

The night, the horses and the desert all know me; as does the sword, the spear, the paper and the pen. I am the one who can be seen even by the blind. Al-Mutanabbi street art mural

We also stopped by the incomparable Queen of Crowns Tattoo in Brooklyn, owned by Molly’s old friend, Lux Berlin, whose family comes from Ukraine. Molly drew this image of a destroyed Russian tank in front of the golden domed Mikhaelovsky monastery when she visited Kyiv last summer. .
