New York Street Art: This Steelcase tractor-trailer truck on Houston Street is an example of a commercial transport vehicle with bold, well-designed and attractive branding.

Enjoy Subprime Lending

New York Street Art: In the past couple of months, we’ve noticed these stickers everywhere around downtown Manhattan. The stickers come in a variety of color schemes and sizes — some small, the size of a palm, others large, like the one pictured here in SoHo. These stickers come with a variety of slogans, each an ironic call-to-action or comment on the current economic sour times. Here it’s “Enjoy subprime lending.”

NYC Grunts Graff Truck

New York Street Art: This is one of the best graff trucks in New York City. This NYC Grunts graffiti-on-wheels has been around for years. We recently caught it parked on 1st Avenue near 14th Street and noticed the recent “Obama – Love Your President” update to the paint job on the rear door of the truck.

C3lso is Celso

New York Street Art: Cheeky wheat-paste street art by C3lso (Celso) on an in-renovation townhouse at the corner of MacDougal Street and King, between Houston and Prince streets, in SoHo/Greenwich Village. Here, C3lso has recreated and scaled up the design of a US Postal Service adhesive label, an item often re-purposed by some graff writers and street artists (mostly the former) as a canvas for creating a stickie tag.

Color and Shape Architecture

We’ve been walking by this colorful building on Bleecker Street in Greenwich Village for years. Even now, our spirits get a lift every time we see it.

D.O.T. Hack

New York Street Art: This is so fucking boss. Over the weekend we noticed the New York City Department of Transportation portable electronic traffic sign on Houston Street has the following message diplayed: “SHIT BIRD ORL.” Love it.

Stickman Muzik

New York Street Art: We’ve never been fans or impressed with the street art work of Stickman. But we’ve changed out opinion lately with the recent appearance of these new music-sheet wheat-pastes by Stickman around downtown Manhattan. Really beautiful. This one is on a U.S. Postal Service mailbox on Elizabeth Street, in Nolita.

Buenos Aires: Ciudad Stencil

We’ve recently been spending some time at the street art stencil blog we stumbled upon called BUE.nos Aires // C1UD4D S73NC1L, or Buenos Aires Ciudad Stencil (or “Stencil City,” Buenos Aires, Argentina). The site hasn’t been updated for a while, but we’re enjoying it nonetheless, especially since it’s written in English, so for us non-Spanish speakers, it’s a window into street art form a Latin American perspective.

Dimitri Drjuchin

New York street art: Awesome, fresh mural painting by artist Dimitri Drjuchin at L’Asso, the gourmet pizza restaurant at Mott and Kenmare streets on the Lower East Side. L’Asso seems to have invited or encouraged a slew A-list street artists to put up their work on the restaurants exterior in recent months. We love it.
