Stefan Sagmeister for DUMBO Walls

Jay Street underpass, BQE

Stefan Sagmeister is recognized for his unorthodox, provocative designs that question the designer’s role in society. For DUMBO Walls, Sagmeister partnered with illustrator Yuko Shimizu, creating corresponding murals where a fierce Octopus and its tentacles form ‘Yes!’ on one side, and a graphic black and white version covers the opposite wall. Begun in 2012, DUMBO Walls a series of outdoor murals packed within a four-block stretch of DUMBO along the BQE.
