Here’s a color image of the new Rivington St. work by street artist Swoon. The photo was shot at night, hence the yellow-orange tint to the image.

Background Note
There’s some fresh work by the artist Swoon on Rivington St., between Bowery and Chrystie, in that interzone between Nolita/Soho and the Lower East Side of Manhattan. The Brooklyn-based Swoon is our favorite New York street artist. This work, which depicts an African-American boy with first pumped, continues Swoon’s series of life-size cut-out wheat-paste images of people engaged in everyday activities on the streets of the city.
