Note the downward double-arm movement of the graff writer depicted in this up, another in the recently upped series of life-size black-and-white wheat-paste ups at the corner of Chrystie and Rivington streets in the Lower East Side. The ups are by well-known New York City artist WK Interact, whose studio and shop are on Stanton Street near Ludlow, in the heart of what is now the ultra-hot real estate market for apartments and condos in the LES.
