The wheat-paste street art of artist “Bunny M” depicts a mysterious mythical humanoid that reads at a glance like an artifact of dark, foreboding Japanese manga comic book illustration enshrined on the brick and stone walls of lower Manhattan and Brooklyn. Pictured here is one in Nolita in downtown New York City.
We love the bold, illustrative quality and humor of this street art piece on a small shop roll-shutter on Orchard Street in New York’s Lower East Side. A girl is up to her neck in a bowl of noodles surrounded by a trio of rabbits. What’s it all mean, you ask? As Chazz said in “Blades of Glory”: “Nobody knows what it means, but it’s provocative … it gets the people going!”
Artist Bradley Theodore has painted one of his iconic, colorful fashion-themed skeleton portraits on the store front of influential style boutique Georgia on Orchard Street in New York’s Lower East Side..
These ubiquitous delivery trucks in New York’s Chinatown are often usually covered in trashy graffiti. Occasionally, you see some eye-catching graffiti art pieces. And rarely you see a truck with a real work of art on it. This “Mast” street art work on a trucked parked on Broome Street is a masterpiece of the genre.
We stumbled upon this sticker of the famous gummy-bear mugshot street art image by the artist WhIsBe on a locker door at the Equinox gym in SoHo, New York City. That’s probably the last place we ever expected to see street art.
A sweet mural by St. John with support and in collaboration with Vans and Pilgrim at Pilgrim Surf Supply in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. We thought this was an image of a whale smoking a cigarette, but actually maybe it’s just a very large fish … smoking a cigarette. In any case, it’s a beautiful piece of commissioned artwork. We really like the aesthetic and color palette. It’s a nice, warm spot of brightness on yet another dreary, frigid winter afternoon in New York.
The British street art group known as the London Police has been leaving its mark on urban landscapes around the world since the late ’90s when they visited Amsterdam and started painting their iconic characters on the walls of the Dutch city. They recently painted this mural in New York’s Lower East Side (near the intersection of 1st Ave and E. 1st St.) as part of the Centre-fuge Public Art Project, which works with local property developers and construction sites to devote temporary spaces to a rotating outdoor gallery of artists and their work.
International street-art star Buff Monster created a visual take on the “I Love New York” idea in his own style with this graffiti-art mural in New York’s East Village. The mural is part of the Centre-fuge Public Art Project, which works with local property developers and construction sites to devote temporary spaces to a rotating outdoor gallery of artists and their work.
