Twin brothers, Ad Deville and DROO (aka Skewville), can’t seem to get a break. Working hard in a city where artists compete with finance gurus for space, the street artists are weathered craftsmen who are staying put and keeping shop in New York. The duo has trudged along, making their presence known throughout the city and around the world with their signature wooden sneakers thrown over electrical lines. Despite their perseverance and rising profile among street artists, Skewville was kicked out of their Lower East Side digs last year. They haven’t let the loss of their space keep them from envisioning grander plans for their Skewville collaboration. They headed east, to Brooklyn in the warehouse filled neighborhood of Bushwick to open their newest laboratory. Keep an ear out for events at their new place.
