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? […]
I’ve seen plenty of street art on U.S. postal stickers before, but usually they’re just on one sticker and quickly “slapped” up on walls and other locations. I saw this piece in the Chelsea neighborhood recently, and it caught my attention, not only for the artistic style, but the fact that it’s an unusually-shaped collage […]
I saw these two street art pieces in NYC last week, and they seemed like an appropriate pair of images to post today on Halloween. We hope you’re all staying safe and enjoying the night out!
As I was walking around Chelsea yesterday, seeing both art gallery exhibitions and street art, I noticed these two pieces by the artist who goes by the alias “HISS.” I’ve seen the work before, and the common theme(s) include cats and multiple eyes, and both of these street art pieces fit that trend.

Who ever said farm life is the only domain for pigs? It seems that there’s an influx of pigs into urban life, as you can see below. At left we have a street art mural seen in Bushwick featuring a chrome-finish piggy bank, courtesy of artist Joshua Santos Rivera, who is also known as “Bik,” […]
I like this mural by “Dirk Art NYC” located on Meserole Street just off of Bushwick Avenue – you can see the mapped location – and the wall before the mural went up – here on Google Street View. At any rate, I like the guy in the boat floating on the calm waters, with […]
Here it is, Labor Day, and summer is in its last hours. My son is downstairs packing his backback for his first day of school – and not the least bit happy about it. But in looking back at the summer, it was certainly a good art-viewing summer, and I thought I’d recap a few […]
