New film explores the controversial art form that has now found its home in a rather unexpected place.

DIVE ART is a short film that explores a new wave of graffiti that’s taken Bushwick, Greenpoint and Williamsburg by storm. Created by filmmakers Brandon Bloch and Tim Sessler the film portrays the beauty of everyday spaces that tend to be passed over.

Artful scribbles are now completely covering the bathrooms of Brooklyn’s finest dive bars such as The Gutter, Duck Duck, Bushwick Country Club, Anchored Inn, and Pearl’s Social. While not the most pleasant setting, these bathrooms can be seen (and wholeheartedly are in the film) as community art spaces.

Inspired by Ian MacAllen’s Tumblr, Toilets of New York, DIVE ART was shot over the course of two days on a Canon 5D and using a slider rail.

The duo explain, “It’s really this organic beauty that’s often dismissed as vandalism. But by reframing the subject, what emerges is art on par with what is sold in galleries.”
