Tue, Jul 17th, 2018

A new selfie spot has popped up on Myrtle Avenue in Fort Greene. A colorful mural was painted last week at Myrtle and Carlton Avenues by artist Misha Tyutyunik, and commissioned by the Myrtle Avenue Brooklyn Partnership.

Fort Greene Patch has the full story:

“A new mural to show pride in Fort Greene has taken over the side of a laundromat on Myrtle Avenue this week.

Artist Misha Tyutyunik painted the colorful “FORT GREENE” mural on the side of the 340 Myrtle Ave. laundromat, on the corner of Carlton Avenue, which he completed on Wednesday.

The piece was put together by the Myrtle Avenue Brooklyn Partnership, who said they wanted to brighten up the corner with a piece celebrating Fort Greene.

“We had a vision for a simple mural that would bring some life to a blank wall and express neighborhood pride, and Misha did a fantastic job executing it in his style,” said Meredith Phillips Almeida, executive director of the group, in a statement.

Tyutyunik started the piece earlier this week and it took him two days to transform the drab green wall into the colorful neighborhood piece, Phillips Almeida said.”
