This month was the unveiling of a new QUEEN ANDREA (a.k.a. Andrea von Bujdoss) mural at Ascenzi Square, located in the triangle formed by North Fourth Street, Roebling Street and Metropolitan Avenue in Williamsburg. In vividly colored lettering, it greets passerby “GOOD DAY” and “HEY YOU” as they approach the intersection, which is adorned in lights.
According to Bedford and Bowery, the mural was inspired by “New York City’s diversity.” This 3,475-square-foot asphalt mural by the influential graffiti artist was commissioned by the Department of Transportation as part of its New York City beautification initiative. Specifically, this mural was part of three “asphalt activations” that have been appearing at certain Citi Bike stations. QUEEN ANDREA was also tapped to beautify the 191st Street Tunnel last year.
As you can see from this street mural, QUEEN ANDREA is known for using colorful geometric designs in creative patterns to express herself. Check out more of QUEEN ANDREA’s work and visit Williamsburg for an up-close look at the mural!
