About Us

 

art-3mph is a curator-led walking tour of artist studios in Brooklyn. This personalized tour is an opportunity to discover and get to know the local art scene and contemporary artists in the intimacy of their creative spaces. During our visits, you will be able to view their work, learn about their concepts, ideas and production methods, and get an insider’s glimpse of their art worlds. As we walk and talk, you will also learn more about the neighborhood’s roots, recent developments, local art institutions, and the street art scene. We conclude our tours with clinking glasses of wine and snacks with the artists in one of their favorite hang-out spots in Brooklyn. The walking tour is 3-hours long and usually held in the early afternoon.

Our inaugural tour is on Oct. 21. This event is free. For more details on the tour please visit Bushwick-3mph. To book, please fill out our reservation request. We offer this experience as a small group tour. Private tours are available upon request.

Originally Armenian, Taline grew up in Paris, France and Beirut, Lebanon. A graduate of NYU and a Senior Product Manager at Amazon, Taline has lived in Williamsburg, Brooklyn since 2007. She can lead you to places not even the hipsters know about. Passionate about art, epicurean goodness, and traveling adventures, as well as possessing a strong entrepreneurial spirit, it was only a matter of time before she linked forces with Rola & Ahmed and art-3mph was created.

Rola is a Brooklyn based interdisciplinary Artist, Educator, and Curator from Lebanon. She grew up between Beirut and Austria, and still can’t decide which she prefers more, the Mediterranean sea or the Austrian Alps. She studied painting at the Florence Academy of Art and received an MFA in Photography from Columbia University. She’s been living in New York since 2014. One thing Rola loves as much as her Siamese cat is discovering the city’s hidden stories.

When he’s not tweeting, he’s weaving the city into fiction. Tech-junkie, digi-journalist, and a die-hard Brooklyn-advocate, Ahmed is Egyptian, and has been calling New York his home for almost 6 years. He’s a writer at heart, a doctor by education, a protector of human liberties by profession, and an all-around animated story-teller in 280 characters, of course.
