We’ve got a slice of pepperoni pizza with an eyeball in the middle, and a popsicle with a grin … two examples of anthropomorphic food as street art. The pizza was seen in Manhattan, and the popsicle was seen in Brooklyn. It makes me a little hungry.
On a recent visit to NYC, I saw two instances of former Presidents showing their current-day style … or rather, the fashion that two particular artists envision for these Presidents. At left, we have George Washington looking cool with his jean jacket, a painting by Jac Lahav on view at 326 Gallery on 7th Avenue. […]
I recently turned 50, and so it seemed a bit prophetic to have seen these two works of street art a few feet away from each other. I saw them on West 22nd Street between 10th and 11th Avenues in New York City. I’d guess they’re by two different artists, but they certainly seem to […]
What do you think of this statement? I kind of like it … sticker art by Portland-based street artist “Rx Skulls” as seen on Chartres Street in New Orleans. To learn more about this artist, check out his website here.
I saw both of these on sidewalks in NYC the other day. Below left we have “Cats Rule, Dogs Drool,” and below right we have what looks like a bumpy dinosaur or pterodactyl, but I’m having a hard time making out what the word below it is supposed to be … if you know anything […]
As I was walking around New Orleans yesterday, I spotted two different groupings of koi fish stenciled on the street … the first picture below is from Camp Street near the Ogden Museum of Southern Art, and the second picture below is from Chartres Street near Ursulines Avenue. (scroll down for more …) I found […]
I saw these two street art pieces by Raf Urban with the theme of “Diversity of Hope,” both in New York City. The image of Lauryn Hill (below left) was seen in Brooklyn, and the image of the woman below right was seen in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan. So, who is Raf Urban? He’s […]
I was exploring Middletown, CT about 10 days ago, and I saw this unusual line drawing (below left) on the side of an electrical box on Main Street. It’s a little unusual for street art, as it’s not exactly graffiti nor is it representational like some street art is. But what it did make me […]
We have a series of images that imagines what it might be like if Picasso were living today and making street art … so here’s a new addition to the collection: maybe Picasso would have painted “Guernica” on a wall along The High Line in NYC instead of on canvas. What do you think?
I while back I enjoyed walking around the Riverfront Park in Rensselaer, New York, where there are numerous murals painted on the concrete supports for the highway that runs overhead. Looking back at the pictures, this one struck me today: as you look at the various faces, do any of them look familiar to you? […]
