Cafe 983 Brooklyn, NY

NYC was my second stop on The Asta Art Tour! In March 2016 I visited my old stomping grounds in Brooklyn (Bushwick). A cafe I used to Bartend at for years was looking like it needed some help and an Asta face lift. It took me 3 days to clean, prime, paint and art up the front of http://983bk.com/  . Bushwick has become extremely well known for street art and transforming what was once a strictly industrial neighborhood, into a colorful walking outdoor public gallery space. There are over 50 galleries and alternative art spaces in the Bushwick neighborhood. I am stoked to have left my mark in my old hood and to have contributed to the outdoor street art scene.
