Culture on the Cheap
Fine Art On Bedford Avenue
There was a time not too long ago when someone said “Bedford Avenue” one would think of the artistic flavor of Williamsburg. I suppose to a certain extent this is still true. This fair burg(h) sports a number of art galleries and stores selling high-end bric-a-brac —but somehow it is just not the same. It is a little too slick for my taste.
Luckily I discovered if you go a little further south there is still plenty of challenging art work to be found on this thoroughfare.
This work (which I have entitled “Nuknfuts”) can be found on the door of an automotive shop in Bedford Stuyvesant.
Next it one can find this anthropomorphic rendering of a gear shift and a mural.
I really like this piece. It has an almost Grandma Moses-esque naive sensibility to it.
