NYC: “Monsieur A” Face by Andre 1

It’s great to see some fresh work by Andre on the streets of downtown Manhattan. Andre (“Tout Va Bien”) is an influential French graf-writer and street-artist whose iconic character “Monsieur A” can be found throughout Paris and other European cities. Sometimes Monsieur A is painted as thin stick-legged character. Other times, only his face, identifiable by a vaguely round shape with a wide toothy grim or pursed lips and always drawn with an “X” for one of the eyes. This recent example (which has since been painted over by the building’s owners) was on Mulberry Street, a block south of Houston Street in Nolita/Soho.
