SOLD 2018 Bushwick Collective Preview

It's the street art festival we've been waiting for!

The Bushwick Collective Block party is THE annual art event in Bushwick, Brooklyn. Combining graffiti, street art, music, food trucks and local vendors, the Collective brings together the best of the community.

SIPROS waves to onlookers as he starts a new Biggie Smalls on Saturday May 26, 2018..

We at SOLD have attended for years, as it's a great place to see live painting, meet street artists we love and hang out with like-minded art fans and photographers.

This year's lineup of artists includes Brazil's Sipros (above), South Carolina's Patch Whisky, Detroit's Ghostbeard, LA's Gondek, The Netherland's Mr. June and Michel Velt, Toronto's Mr. Hydde, Miami's Urban Ruben, Aquarela and Golden, and NYC's own GIZ, Eric Inkala, Jeff Henriquez, Cekis, Logan Hicks, Joe Iurato, Lexi Bella, Hopsart, Gemma Gené, Reme821 (below) 9-yr old Lola the Illustrator and 8-yr old The Soph.

Artists will be painting in the run-up to and during the block party. Stay tuned to SOLD IG stories all week to see the action!
