Jayson Naylor’s murals are easy to recognize for his use of bold, psychedelic colors and pop culture images wrapped around an uplifting message. This piece, which is on the side a store located at the northeast corner of Grand Street and Bedford Avenue in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, is called Indulge in Love. As you can see, Jayson has spelled out the word LOVE using images of things we all love to indulge in, such as . . .
An Ice Cream Cone.
A little bit of Love with a Heart-shapedV.
A Delicious Piece of Fruit!
Jayson also a has a piece on the building behind this one, which is only partially visible from street level, so I’m afraid I cannot tell you what that one says. Indulge In Love went up in August of 2019.
Do you like Adventuretime? I sure do. In fact, I fucking love it! If you feel similar love for Finn, Jake and all of their friends in the Land of Ooo, then you might also want to own these rad Doc Martens with likenesses of all of the Adventuretime characters you adore right on them! Holy shit! Continue reading Yes, It Exists: Adventuretime Doc Martens→
This poster of Dump as a fat, bloated Bat Man was spotted at the corner of Bedford Ave. and North 7th Street in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. It is from Degenerate Art Gallery and can be purchased as a silk screen poster at This Link!
Now that summer is here, a warm, sunny day is the perfect time to go on a Street Art Safari around the neighborhoods of Williamsburg and the adjacent Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Just take the L Train from Manhattan to either the Bedford Avenue or Lorimer Avenue stops and you’ve got an urban Wonderland that’s yours to freely explore. Recently, we spotted this colorful piece by Brazilian mural artist Eduardo Kobra on North Ninth Street just east of Bedford Avenue and instantly recognized it as an homage to one of the 1985, black-and-white portrait photo’s by Michael Halsband (see below), which captured Jean-Michel Basquiat and Andy Warhol wearing Everlast shorts and boxing gloves.

There sure was a lot of new street art to see in Williamsburg this past weekend, such as the McDonald’s-themed cartoon character parodies by a guy who calls himself Mr. OneTeas, dubbed The Wack Donald’s Project. Clever! The image of Snow White, above, was photographed on North 8th Street between Wythe and Bedford Avenues, while the images of Donald Duck and Sponge Bob are right by the stairs at the entrance to the L Train at Bedford and North 7th Street. I understand there is also a Ronald Madonna drawing, though I was not fortunate enough to come across that one.
