Bushwick Street Art - Brooklyn - New York City- By Vivienne Gucwa The sky wavered in mood earlier today displaying an angsty mix of rage-puffed storm clouds and baby blues streaked by sunlight. It was the perfect backdrop for Bushwick's incredible array of street art murals that pepper the industrial urban landscape. I have been spending an inordinate amount of time in Brooklyn lately. My other half was born in Brooklyn (I like to refer to it as his "hatch-zone") and is a great walking-off-steam companion. And so we keep ending up in interesting places on these walks. Bushwick was never really a friendly place when I was younger (this is a severe understatement). It's fascinating to see the stage of evolution it seems to be in currently. The factories are all still there but there is also an amazing amount of art that seems to be thriving on the walls of Bushwick. Growing up in Queens ogling 5 Pointz, a large industrial space transformed into a premiere space for graffiti/street artists to cover in art, I was sad to hear that 5 Pointz will eventually be razed. However, Bushwick seems to have a blossoming 5 Pointz feel at this moment in time which is exhilarating to witness. Who knows what the future holds for Bushwick? But, for now, it's a perfect mix of grit and art. ----

Monoliths From a Distant Past - Chrysler Building - New York City- By Vivienne Gucwa
We kept pieces of the old cities in place to remind us of a time when we were bound to the earth.
Their buildings stood empty yet proud: monoliths constructed in a time when wonder could be extracted from the tiniest of glimpses into an unexplored sky.
They stood there: remnants of times when white clouds were all that was plentiful and when our faces replicated themselves temporarily onto their gleaming facades.
While the rest of the world pushed forward under red skies dotted with emulsified exhaust, we stopped to take in a view of a distant past.
And I scratched our memories into the sky with an old key.

Night Visions - Street Art - East Village - New York City- By Vivienne Gucwa
When I was really young, I used to imagine that at night when the majority of people went to sleep in New York City, all of the graffiti and street art on the walls would come to life. Every figment of an artist's imagination, previously bound to the confines of a wall, would finally get to roam the city streets with abandon.
I still like to think this is the case. While reality is never quite as vivid as my imagination, the magic of photography keeps those sorts of dreams alive. I remember waiting in front of this mural for a long time at night for the right person to breathe life into the scene.
As the star of the cinematic scene in my mind approached, I couldn't have been happier. She walked onto this colorful urban set and it was as if she had merely leaped out of the mural only moments before.
This colorful street art collage of pop culture and comic book inspired figures once graced a wall on the corner of Houston and the Bowery in the exciting neighborhood of the East Village in New York City.
