About this event
Let’s visit Brooklyn and discover some of the finest street art in the world!
WHAT WE’LL DO:
Our experience will be broken up into five parts:
1: Transport to a coffee shop in Brooklyn filled with stunning artwork. There, we’ll chat about what street art means to each of us.
2: Take a guided tour through East Williamsburg and view dozens of commissioned murals, some over 40 feet in size! I’ll share amazing stories from a mix of local and international artists.
3: Travel back in time to the 1970’s to learn about NYC’s early graffiti and hip-hop scene. We’ll explore the origins of this art form– from tags and ‘Wildstyle’ pieces, to different crews and techniques.
4: Visit the Bushwick Collective, the largest outdoor street art gallery in the U.S.A. See a wide range of iconic pieces from some of our legendary artists.
5. Hop on a virtual subway ride to the Wall of Justice– a new space devoted to a powerful art movement. Bonus: Get to see some ‘creatures’ on the train with unique artwork by Subway Doodle.

Hi, my name is Ariel! I’m a 5-star rated street art guide on Airbnb and Trip Advisor with 100+ reviews. I work as a designer, artist, and street art photographer. I have documented murals in some of the world’s largest street art hubs like London, Miami, Barcelona, Philadelphia, and my home playground of Brooklyn. I’ve participated in mural festivals and permanent art exhibitions including Paste-Up Berlin, Wynwood Walls, MoSA, and the Atlanta Beltline Project.

I am passionate about sharing artists’ stories because they represent such a wide range of cultures, ideas, and personal styles.
