The NY x Boston Street Art Poster by WhIsBe

We’ve been seeing more variety and more graphical exploration in the street art of artist WhIsBe in recent weeks. These photos below show one such recent work in SoHo. This New York x Boston wheat-paste poster is on Thompson Street, on the back courtyard wall of the now closed Barolo restaurant. The New York Yankees and Boston Redsox professional baseball team logos are a visual shorthand for the cities. The logos had been widely used in various media to represent the two cities’ solidarity in the face of tragedy, and in spite of an historically pronounced sporting rivalry. The image of the new Freedom Tower helps connects the tragic events of 9/11 and Boston, and the oft-used slogans (“united we stand) as Twitter hashtags are further unifying messages of the poster.
