Thanks to BK Street Art & in cooperation with Montana Cans & Crest Hardware... Williamsburg, Brooklyn now has its very own wall of fun and whimsical characters created and painted by artist Egle Zvirblyte.
Egle Zvirblyte is a Lithuanian artist based in London. They have worked with clients such as Nike, Refinery29 & OK Cupid to create amazingly fun and colorful illustrations.
We are excited to see her work so close to the shop! If you want to take a look and grab some pics, head on over to Meeker and Manhattan Ave.
We have recently been blessed with a rooftop installation by artist MRtoll in collaboration with Foundry Wood. You can view the piece, which is a graffiti stylized 'NYC' made of mirrors and wood from the street below right in front of Crest Hardware. The piece is part of a series titled 'The Graffiti Vanity Project' which seeks to invoke the viewer to interact with the art by seeing yourself within the piece and taking a selfie!
The Graffiti Vanity Project looks at our obsession of looking at ourselves and the relationship of graffiti and it’s roll in the selfie.
Graffiti was the first selfie, people have always longed to leave their mark. They have been scratching their names on walls for over 2000 years. In the 1970’s and 80’s youth started taking to the street of New York City and Philadelphia with spray cans. They would paint, tag or graffiti their names over and over to see who could be the most seen writers in their city. Street artist MRtoll and Foundry Wood have partnered up to create Graffiti Mirrors. The mirrors are also a reflection of the city and its relationship to the daily commuters.
The idea is to give the viewers a chance to interact with the city and their surroundings. In a digital era were selfies and social media are the mainstream form of expression the mirrors encourage the viewer to become a creator itself, not only by engaging with the mirrors but also by taking a selfie and therefore leaving their own mark.
We are very pleased and honored to be featured in this months issue of 'Hardware Retailing Magazine' alongside Artist Rachel Lussier, whose work was recently displayed at Crest Hardware.
