I’m an artist, I do street art and murals.Misha Tyutyunik known here in Brooklyn as MDot was born in Kiev, Ukraine, but for years he has been spilling his artistic thoughts into the canvas of Brooklyn streets.Sometimes though he chooses peculiar canvases, garbage trucks for example.I painted stars and clouds and little houses here.Here you can see the people picking up trash, here’s a young woman, here’s a guy, they’re holding a garbage can.Tyutyunik chose this canvas after New York’s Department of Public Service asked for help inspiring locals to properly source and recycle household waste. In order to promote the program five garbage trucks working in each of New York’s boroughs got a new paint job from local artists. We wanted to give the truck a face.Here you can see eyes and mouth and teeth.Through the eyes you can sort of see the future of a perfect neighborhood where everyone does what they need to.Tyutyunik doesn’t just work on garbage trucks.
This is a mural he did on the wall of a local school called children against guns. The kids helped him paint and the goal he says is to fight guns with paints and a spray paint can. We took the children’s ideas and united them in this mural.They didn’t paint the top of the wall of course, but they helped me down here.Tyutyunik says many street artists have moved to Brooklyn in the past five years, each bringing their own unique style.
