Bushwick is a New Montmartre!

RE:ARTISTE explores Bushwick

Do you remember (or did you read) about the times when Montmartre was an isolated area, occupied by emerging artists? “Bohemian” meant “poor” and “unsettled” rather than “stylish”. And nobody knew the word “Impressionist”.

Time has passed and changed. However, there are still areas in the world where you can discover new talents and see their art in the making, right in their studios or in the streets. In New York, this is definitely Bushwick. Very diverse and exceptionally rich in opportunities to find new art and meet the artists. The views of Manhattan skyline from the Bushwick artist lofts are as much incredible as from the steps of the famous Sacre Coeur in Paris.

Not every art enthusiast really wants to dig deep and research how to identify that new thing in art. Public’s taste is specific: people are mostly get impressed by something striking and of a large scale. And here’s Bushwick comes on stage again: with its street art, this is an unbeatable destination point for those who want to see some stunning collages and murals, even without entering artists’ studios.

So our advice to all art enthusiasts and cultured tourists: hop on the notorious L-Train and ride to Bushwick for some really cool selfies… oh sorry, – impressions! 🙂 What is precious about all those wall murals is they are, unfortunately, temporary. So by capturing them on camera, you sort of preserve and collect them.
