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.
The latest, commissioned street art at the Rag & Bone JEAN concept store is this mural by artist Hisham Akira Bharoocha.

Fresh street art by artist Calen Blake on the old Bowery Bank building, a.k.a., the Jay Maisel Building, at the corner of Bowery and Spring streets in New York’s Lower East Side.

This #ELLEThugLife street art paste-up at the old Bowery Bank Building (a.k.a., the Jay Maisel Building) in downtown New York is filled with diverse religious symbolism and compelling imagery. It depicts a naked woman wearing only a head-scarf and partial face veil and sporting many tattoos as she stares directly at the viewer. The image is powerful, mysterious and evocative.
One of artist Bradley Theodore’s recent street art additions to the downtown New York CIty landscape is this diminutive full-body skeletal portrait of fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld and his Birman cat Choupette. The iconic Lagerfeld, currently serving as creative director for Chanel, has made many public appearances with Choupette that the kitty herself has become something of a fashion icon. The painting can be found outside L’Asso, a pizza joint on Mott Street in Nolita, and continues Theodore’s series of portraits depicting various celebrities from the fashion world.
