Street Art Ups in NoLIta: Bäst, Blue Monster + Kinky Sticker

Several layers of Krylon ups on this NoLIta building have been cannibalized by several more layers of wheat-pasted street art and promotional graphica. Here’s the breakdown: the star here is the set of grenade images by the well-known Brooklyn street artist Bäst, whose work is partly covered by an anonymously authored blue monster cut-out and a cellophane promotional sticker for the Monterrey, Mexico alt-indie band Kinky. At the edges are the margins of a number of works by several artists who we can’t identify. We once saw three guys quickly and surreptitiously (though very surreptitiously because we saw them) putting up posters at this very spot very late one night and the only thing we could ID of them was that one of them wore Bapesta sneakers and the other two wore Puma kicks. All three wore baggie hoodies. Hmm.
