Stroll Through The Hood – November 2015

I traveled most of this month but still had some fun time strolling through my hood. It is unusually warm for November and so sitting outside and getting happy doggies jump onto your lap and greeting you is something that can happen. The pic makes me laugh- you can barely see where the dog starts and ends ;)

A lot of new street art was happening during November- here is a work in progress by Shepard Fairey again. I guess he likes J.C. :)

And here is another one in progress- I will try to make sure to post pictures of the finished work next month.

Below is a fun pigs in space graffiti by my friend Sam Pullin aka Bed Bugs in Love – love it! I also often say “if pigs could fly” …

Mana Contemporary had an Open Studio day – perfect time to goof around there with some friends …sorry but …cannot take everything art related too serious ;)

In front of Mana was this awesome new mural by How and Nosm

I love that there is so much street art is happening in Jersey City – it makes me excited to walk around everyday even if it is for normal errands like going to the supermarket and keeping an eye open if there is something new happening that might inspire me.

Hope you liked the stroll!

Have a gorgeous week

    I really enjoy seeing your neighbourhood, would love to have so much street art around for inspiration. I live in a seaside area in NSW, Australia, lots of sea, sand and trees, but not much street art. A few years ago my husband and I went down to Sydney to a little island that was once a ship building facility and nowadays they use the area and all the old buildings for some art festivals. The one I am thinking of was called “Outpost”, and they had the most wonderful collection of street artists displaying their work, it was amazing. There was talk of it being an bi-annual event, but unfortunately I haven’t seen it advertised again. You may still be able to see a record of it on the web if you google “Outpost at Cockatoo Island”.
    But thanks for sharing all the cool art in your neighbourhood.

    Loved this post. Of course, the pics of you always make me smile because you are smiling/laughing in most of them!! But these were really fun with the doggie and silly friends! I have never seen this type of artwork in person – out in the world – so I can only imagine how it must look when you are standing near it. Personally – I so love seeing the world thru your eyes Nat. Seems like I have traveled miles with you and love it all. Love the bear and she is in orange – my fav!!! But these are all just so intriguing to me. Thanks bunches for sharing. j.

    Love your strolls! You certainly live in a cool area. It must be inspiring for you to just walk to a local market. Do you come home in the mood to create some art of your own?

      thank you Lea! Yes- I often come home and cannot wait to get into the studio to try out something that was inspired by my stroll.
