I discovered this mural while strolling through Williamsburg, Brooklyn yesterday, and was blown away. Located on Fillmore Street , the full piece is approximately 50 feet long and 12 feet tall. Completed about a month ago, it’s a collaborative effort between artists Tristan Eaton and How & Nosm (twin brothers Raoul and Davide Perre).
One of the best parts of finding this was the manner of its discovery—my girlfriend & I were taking a stroll through the neighborhood and were intrigued by the sounds of Latin music & revelry along with the smells of savory BBQ emanating from around a corner.
We arrived to discover a summer block party that was in full swing—the street’s residents had closed off the street to traffic and were festively grilling, dancing and playing salsa—one elderly gent with a cigar was wailing on the congas—as children played games and went skipping through the crowds. The overall vibe was exceedingly pleasant, with the mural providing a perfect backdrop to what proved to be a quintessential “Why I love NYC” moment.
