Mosaic Glass Installation
Jay Street Metrotech Subway Station, Brooklyn
Based on the paintings of Ben Snead

Larger-than-real-life glass mosaic creatures at the Jay Street / Metrotech station in Brooklyn: long walls of mosaic beetles and birds and parrots combined with black and white rasterized prints of bugs on shiny white tile. They are based on the paintings of Ben Snead. Find more frogs, spiders, insects, fish, birds, heads, eyeballs and elbows at his website. Very cool.

They put me in mind of Charley Harper’s amazing animal kingdom artworks, available now on everything from dish towels to puzzles.
