The massive painting is by the artist Lakwena and its message “Lift you higher” could be describing the artwork itself. It’s a bright, aesthetically cheery artwork that has all the right pleasure-centering amounts of visual flavor crystals added to it.
We were riding by the Deitch Wall in New York City Wednesday evening when we came across the artist Swoon hard at work on a massive new mural. The artwork looked to be about 90% complete and Swoon herself was working details with a brush from atop a hydraulic platform. We’ve been following Swoon’s work for years, starting with her sublime street art in the early 2000s. In fact, photos of Swoon’s artwork were among the very first series of posts to our blog way back in the day. We’ll be revisiting the Deitch Wall in the coming days so look for more pix and posts, and if you’re in NYC, stop by and see the art for yourself. The Deitch Wall is at the corner of Bowery and Houston Street in the Lower East Side.
A new massive street art mural has just gone up at the Deitch Wall in New York City. We’ve got lots of pix below. We were there Friday when the artists REVOK and POSE were working late into the evening putting some of the final touches to the artwork. More details to come.
Friday evening we stumbled upon the artists REVOK and POSE working on a new street art mural at the Deitch Wall, the commissioned space at the corner of Bowery and Houston streets in downtown New York City. Looking forward to seeing the finished work. More pix to come.
Fresh “Popeye” mural street art by legendary graffiti artist John “Crash” Matos at the Deitch Wall, the commissioned, curated art space at the corner of Bowery and Houston Street in downtown New York City.
We just caught sight of the new street-art mural at the Deitch Wall, at the corner of Houston Street and the Bowery, in downtown Manhattan, New York City. “Marty” seems to be the work of a group of artists who were putting the finishing touches on the artwork as we arrived. Among the artists there was Brooklyn-based, Japanese street-art superstar Lady Aiko (also of FAILE) at work on a part of the painting. The mural appears to be a birthday tribute to photographer Martha Cooper, who in 1984 published her seminal book of photography titled “Subway Art.” The book documented the myriad graffiti art that covered many NYC trains in the 1980′s. Cooper was present at the mural site today and can be seen at center in the artists group photo below.
