“You!” paste-ups on Ludlow Street in the Lower East Side of downtown New York City. This stretch of wall along the block of Ludlow between Hester and Canal streets has recently become a regular spot for street art, especially of a strain of art-world conscious wheat-paste works and posters.
One of our go-to local restaurants downtown New York City is the Fat Radish. It’s just a block away from Global Graphica HQ in the Below-Delancey (a.k.a., “BelDel”) / Northeast Chinatown area of the Lower East Side. The restaurant menu is an refreshingly original, contemporary take on English gastropub fare (there’s the classic “the Full English” breakfast). The food is refreshingly good and beautiful presented as the elegant, yet laidback shabby-chic interior decor of its renovated space. The Fat Radish is in the first floor of an old Orchard Street tenement building formerly occupied by a Chinese wholesale business.
We found this awesome and kind of creepy and grotesque illustration on the desk of M., the art director working on one of our projects. He let is take a pic of it and post it to GG. Thanks, M.
