Who Made the Painted Oval Installation Above the Williamsburg Bridge Bike Ramp?

One ephemeral and illegal artwork on the Williamsburg Bridge ended in arrest this week, but another has been up there for over a month in plain sight, and has remained essentially unscathed: a series of oval paintings installed in a funneling formation near the place where the bike-pedestrian path forks on the Manhattan side.

The installation, entitled “The Bridge Comes Alive,” is the work of a group of artists who go by Baji Lives!. They painted the circular tones on paper in a studio before sticking them to the bridge beams under cover of darkness one night earlier this summer. It’s not their first time working with this type of outdoor pointillism: previous installations by Baji Lives! have dotted a metal shutter on the Lower East Side and the facade of our old building in DUMBO. Here’s how their most recent installation went down.
