Reading the Streets: JC’s wheatpastings in Brooklyn

BROOKLYN, N.Y. – With little footprint aside from his street art, JC offers little in the way of details about identity. Instead, his anonymity forces the focus away from the artist and to the art.
Luckily, he (or she) has plenty of work to make the most of in Williamsburg, particularly outside the decrepit Salvation Army thrift store on Bedford Avenue. The wheatpastings are less detailed than some of the legal murals in the area, but they convey the curves and beauty of the women represented – adding a little sexuality and color to a gray wall.
JC doesn’t always work alone, as proven by his recent collaboration with another fairly shy artist – MuryzOne. Together the two artist help to keep Williamsburg a little rough around the edges, even as the area continues to gentrify.
Those new concrete condos continually being built along the waterfront still fail to shape this part of Brooklyn as much as the artists like JC that use it as their canvas.
