Geezer with Puppy Wheat-Paste Posters

Here are some curious wheat-pastes in a three-repeat “up” in Lower Manhattan. The images show a geezer holding a puppy. Okay, we already know what you’re asking: what does it all mean? Now, we might try to deconstruct this and Scotch-tape together some theory, but, really, we’d just be grasping at straws. We’re as stumped as you are. (Or as you might be–if you have a theory, drop us a line.) Maybe this is a shot from a famous film. Or a found photo that’s now become another ephemeral piece of downotwn street art. At any rate, we can imagine seeing this in really hip clothing store like A.P.C. or ALife Rivington Club or Paul Smith. Or maybe in the bathroom of a downtown French bistro.
