Oyvey Bloomberg

This example of sticker street art on Delancey Street, in New York City’s Lower East Side / SoHo area, does double duty as both political-cultural commentary on New York City mayor Mike Bloomberg and as homage-rip to artist Shepard Fairey and his iconic “Giant Has a Posse” image. The Yiddish “Oyvey” substitutes the usual “Obey” on Fairey’s famous stickers. Bloomberg’s high-contrast image is in place of wrestler Andre the Giant’s face. Brilliant, cheeky and well-executed.
