You know Brooklyn is full of art. You know it’s full of artists. You know there are dozens upon dozens of more or less formal gallery spaces throughout the borough—from Bay Ridge to Red Hook, Gowanus to Bed-Stuy, Crown Heights to Williamsburg, Greenpoint to Bushwick. You also know that there are annual open studio events and other sorts of regularly scheduled art programming. However, you might not know these five outstanding artists, whose creative roots in Brooklyn run deep. Know them, indeed, you should. Our Q&As with them will certainly grant you some insight into their artistic practices—and they might also teach you a thing or two about Brooklyn.

Graig Kreindler should be on this list.
Maybe someone at L should have thought to put a sample of each artists work instead of a GQ shot!
I totally agree. I am more interested in what kind of art they do than what they look like.
Exactly who cares what they have to say if we dont know if their art is any good? Anyway you forgot Peter Caine who so your list is moot.
