Last week, Minneapolis-based street artist HOTTEA, who is well-known for stringy street art that normally weaves its away around chain-link fences, transformed the pedestrian tunnel at the Williamsburg Bridge into a colorful passageway. Street art photographer Luna Park captured the ephemeral installation, and you can find more images on her The Street Spot blog.
Remarkably simple but transformative, this isn’t the first time an artist has added color to the metallic jungle of the bridge’s pedestrian walkway. Peter Brock’s “Baji Lives!” was an equally vibrant jolt in roughly the same space.
