Pictured here is a super-fresh street art wheat-paste illustrated image of a boy with a Kalashnikov automatic rifle by artist “Teacake” on Ludlow Street in New York’s Lower East Side. As we’ve mentioned in previous postings over the past year or so, the short stretch of Ludlow Street just south of Grand Street is gradually evolving into a fertile “street art gallery.” It’s perfectly suited as a canvas for street art given that on each side of the street is a window-less, door-less 20-meter-long wall, sides of a buildings that face each other.
We’re intrigued by this new wheat-pasted street art piece that just went up on the Mulbeery Street-side of the famous Puck Building in New York’s SoHo. The artwork is a composite of a black-and-white photo of a sexy, topless bleached-blonde woman cropped and displayed within a two-dimensional shape of a gun. There’s a mash-up of mystery, danger and sexuality implied by the image. – CL
