The Street Spot, a part of the street art-focused Robots Will Kill website, has a series of photos by Becki Fuller of British street artist Sweet Toof hitting Williamsburg rooftops for some mural-size pieces. You might know the artist’s work from his visual vocabulary of puffy pink gums filled with pearly white teeth.
Sweet Toof can be seen all over Brooklyn, though his most visible work for me has always been the jaws hanging outside of Eastern District and Swallow Cafe on Bogart Street in Bushwick. Check out a few of Becki Fuller’s photos below, situated right on the Williamsburg waterfront with the Domino Sugar Factory looming the background. For the full photo essay, see the blog.
Last month, Sweet Toof had a gallery exhibition of paintings at the iconic Bushwick street art gallery Factory Fresh. The works featured the artist’s trademark teeth, but those choppers were placed within surreal canvases composed of skeletons on horseback duking it out in urban settings. Maybe someone needs a trip to the dentist.
- See the artist’s website for more information and paintings, including some portrait work that looks vaguely similar to a more skeletal George Condo.
An earlier version of this post mis-attributed the photos to Luna Park. The mistake is now corrected.
