Out in Brooklyn this week you may well be coming across a new mural by the artist known as Specter, complete with “Adios Grocery Deli” signage and a faux ATM. Using a relatively blank wall and an old gray parking garage door as his mural, Specter took it upon himself to spice the area up a bit with a grocery store hood, a sign thanking passers by for using the store that doesn’t exist, and some lovely red white and blue flags up above. His greatest joy seems to be the ATM which he says he had “a blast” watching people go to use.
These couple of images come from Wooster Collective where Specter also dropped the following message outlining the basics of the project that we very much hope will continue through the borough:
“Here are images of a mural I just finished, “Bushwick Bodega” in Brooklyn.
It refers to the changing landscape of the Buswick neighborhood and it’s demographics. The clues are in the signage.
It was also a blast watching people go to use the faux ATM.” – Specter
See if you can find this mural as you head out to your daily business in NYC today, and let us know how you like it!
