Vad du kommer att göra

Bushwick has long enjoyed a reputation as a mecca for the world’s most illustrious street artists, who have radically altered its urban landscape. Residential, commercial, and industrial buildings have all served as large-scale canvases for muralists to engage with the history, sites, and people of one of the most dynamic neighborhoods in Brooklyn. However, local residents and visitors don't always have easy access to basic information regarding any given mural, such as artist biography, artistic motivation, or how the content and style relate to local architecture and the community's rich past. This carefully curated and independently researched tour is designed to provide greater context surrounding key works of art while simultaneously introducing guests to some of Bushwick's local establishments. Whether you’re a native New Yorker looking to find out more about the public art you walk past every day or a tourist in town looking for a less conventional excursion, this 1.5-hour tour offers in-depth information presented in a fun, engaging way. Unlike other tours, we'll only be focusing on a small number of murals, allowing us to dissect the symbolism and meaning as a group.

I'm an art historian, independent curator, and cultural critic based in Bushwick. I've been a curatorial assistant for an annual street art exhibition that commissioned murals from internationally acclaimed artists like Eduardo Kobra, ROA, Herakut, and Phlegm. As well, I served as an assistant project manager for the MTA in New York, helping contemporary artists translate their designs into site-specific works for the subway system. I'm deeply passionate about contemporary art, architecture, the history of my neighborhood, and I'm eager to share my knowledge with others.

It was a wonderful experience - learnt many things that would’ve otherwise been hidden from me. Very unique tour. I really appreciated the fact Tony held this tour despite the fact that I was the only person in attendance.

I went on Tony's tour with two friends and definitely recommend it! The three of us are locals but wanted to spend an afternoon in Brooklyn the same way we'd spend an afternoon if we were traveling. Tony was a fantastic host who shared a deep understanding of street artists and styles. It was obvious that this is a subject he knows a lot about, and what he doesn't know, he intends to learn. Also, his calm and friendly demeanor made this a comfortable tour where we felt encouraged to ask questions and participate, but we were just as happy to listen, take it all in, and learn. The tour was well-paced and a great way to spend an afternoon in Bushwick!

Tony was an excellent guide. We loved his understanding and explanation of the history & culture of the neighborhood, of how this influenced The Bushwick Collective and subsequent urban regeneration. Tony has a deep knowledge of each of the art pieces that he presents, along with the respective artist. We appreciated that he was interested to listen to our interpretation of some of the pieces before sharing and discussing his own. We very much enjoyed this tour and will be back.

Tony is extremely knowledgeable and shares his passion for street art with details and historical references. Despite rain and cold temperature, Tony kept going and was very friendly. We learned about Bushwick and we'd like to do it again!

Tony is absolutely knowledgeable and shares his passion for art in general and street art in particular. The tour covers the most commercial-residential and the most industrial sections of Bushwick -and in both there are very interesting murals to enjoy, in good part thanks to the comprehensive explanations Tony offers. Too bad the tour wasn't a bit longer (like half an hour longer, totalling 2 hours) and didn't include a stop (say for coffee and restroom use). Still, highly recommended.

I would highly recommend this tour, there is no way you can appreciate the symbolism behind the murals without an expert like Tony. I've had very limited experiences with art, this tour reminded me a lot of the intricate symbolism described in Robert Langdon stories, but in person with the actual murals. Bushwick is a unique place for street art, and this tour gives full justice to it!
