We got a nice laugh out of this piece of graffiti we found one of those metal sidewalk basement doors one sees all over New York City. This one is on Orchard Street, between Broome and Grand streets, in the art-fashion part of the Lower East Side. The words “Skim” and “Milk,” as in “skim milk” are written on the edge frame of the doors in pink paint.
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.
“You and Me” wheat-paste street art with a mix of typographic styles. This street-art piece in on the Spring Street side of the famous “Jay Maisel building” on the Bowery in the Lower East Side of New York City.
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.
On Saturday, we stumbled upon this solid stencil street art on Elizabeth Street in fashionable Nolita, in downtown New York City. It’s a good example of the stencil medium, and we like the slogan “Art rules the streets,” though the notion itself is more aspirational hype than reality. More of this type of stuff, please. We love it.
