Moss Graffiti as Holiday Decor: Williamsburg Edition

December 11, 2012

Wandering in Brooklyn the other day, I was headed toward Williamsburg when I saw the moss graffiti wall that Mexican artist Hugo Rojas created this year for the DUMBO Arts Fest. I managed to restrain myself (but just barely) from reaching up to rub a velvety hoof:

Photography by Julie Carlson except where noted.

Above: Rojas’ work is on the wall at Galapagos Art Space, at the corner of Main and Water streets (take the 2 or the 3 train to Clark Street).

Above: Moss wall graffiti, popularized by artist Edina Tokodi (see her work at Mosstika), is a wry offshoot of spray paint. A way to redeem concrete landscapes, the installations are also the ultimate low-maintenance vertical gardens, minus the vertical garden kit.

For more moss magic, see “Instant Office Companion of the Moss Variety.”

Above: Donner? Or Blitzen?

For another dramatic way to cover a bare wall, see “World’s Biggest Vertical Garden: Another Reason to Visit Italy.”
