We stumbled upon these street-artsy wild posting images of Paris-based American fashion blogger and journalist Diane Pernet on Crosby Street in SoHo, in New York City. The posters include the hashtag #asvofnyc, suggesting her recent presence in New York for fashion week or another event perhaps (?). Pernet’s website A Shaded View of Fashion, or ASVOF is among the style world’s most influential blogs.
Pictured here is some more wheat-paste street art by the ubiquitous and prolific post-graffiti artist Cost (a.k.a., Adam Cost) referencing the French street artist Invader (a.k.a., Space Invader) and his signature retro-1980s videogame icon. This one is on Crosby Street in SoHo, in New York City.
Here’s another instance of one of those stencil street art images of U.S. President Abraham Lincoln we’ve been stumbling upon occasionally in New York City over the past year. This one is on a wall along Crosby Street near Howard Street across from the Mondrian Hotel in SoHo.
Fresh street art on Crosby Street in SoHo, New York City: This wheat-paste street artwork shows a pair of woman’s legs and feet in striped stockings and red high-heel shoes stuck to a wad of chewing gum. At first glance, we thought this was street art from the artist Bast, but on closer inspection we’re not convinced. It’s not in the collage style of Bast and has a bit more graphical polish. If you can ID the artist, send us an email.
These wheat-pasted Alife ad posters on Crosby Street, in SoHo, are trying to be provocative but feel conceptually kind of tired to us, even though we’re seeing them here for the first time. We suppose the ads work on a brand-awareness level, since we’d forgotten the clothing brand and hadn’t seen it anywhere for awhile. Maybe our tastes have changed and where we shop for clothes isn’t where Alife is stocked anymore.
Beautiful, fading poster on Crosby Street in SoHo, New York, promoting artist-designer Dylan Egon‘s “Art as Lifestyle” exhibition and furniture collection this past December at reGeneration in New York
Fresh street art on Crosby Street in SoHo of a woman with a 1970s-like blaxploitation style – afro hairstyle, big earrings, necklace, etc. This paste-up is by the artist Lady Millard, whose wheat-pasted artwork and cursive “Lady” tag seem to be popping up everywhere in downtown New York City in recent weeks.
Fresh wheat-paste street art from Brooklyn-based artist Bast on Crosby Street on SoHo, in downtown New York City. This twinned, diptych-like image a horse-headed woman plays with color alterations in each of the two versions. Note the newer cursive Bast signature and different colored versions of it, too.
This small wheat-paste street art image of a black-eyed girl crying blood is sad and haunting. We stumbled upon this paste-up on Crosby Street in SoHo, across from the Equinox gym near Prince Street, though we’ve seen this elsewhere in downtown New York City, notably at the Jay Maisel Building.
