Specter Art

Sunday I took a walk through Bed-Stuy to catch up with artwork of Specter, who I believe is Canadian and who has posted a lot of new stuff in recent weeks. He does incredibly beautiful street art, handpainted and very detailed. Here are four of his pieces. To see more photos with details from the pieces, check out this link.

It was a strenuous walk. A friend provided me with the locations of the pieces, but I had to hoof it across a large section of Bed-Stuy in just a couple of hours. Quite a workout, but just my kind of afternoon adventure!

The color and detail are incredible for street art. What is the half-life of pieces like these? Do they ever achieve a "permanent" status?

My kind, too.

Wow these pieces are amazing. I wonder how/when he finds or makes time to do them. Because obviously he can't just whip them out at night in fifteen minutes.

Really cool.

Thanks for posting them.
