ALife Guerrilla Mixed Media

Okay, this is as originalas this stuff can get. Alife, the style collective whose inspired Lower East Side store stocked all sorts of cool sneakers and tees by the various likes of Paul Smith and Nike, has been on a sticker bender recently, but here we have what could pass as a mixed-media art experiment in and of itself. We found this in the ultra-trendy Meatpacking District, formerly a mostly industrial-commercial area that is now home to multi-million dolar condos and luxury loft, as well as high-end boutiques, restaurants, clubs and hotels. New York never fails to offer contrast — street art as guerrilla marketing set amid the beef-packaging warehouses and ultra-hot urban real estate.
