Faust Art in Brooklyn Features Artsy Black-and-White Scribbles

This Faust art is a series of graffiti drawings plastered in an abandoned space. These creations were made by 12 talented artists. On the window of this abandoned store in Brooklyn, the team painted the words "It seemed like a good idea at the moment."

Within the actual store, the word 'Faust' spreads across the white blank wall. This is a a nice artistic addition to the white blank walls, but it also worked well with the checkered floor.

Implications - There was a time, believe it or not, where graffiti was considered little more than a blight on the art community. It operated without influence as a subculture for years, but recently it has been given a mainstream slant thanks to the work of artists like Banksy and Shepherd Fairey. 'Faust' is a great addition to the modern high-art/graffiti canon.
