Beautiful street art portrait by TYNK on Orchard Street south of Canal Street, on the edge of Chinatown in New York’s Lower East Side. The mural depicts someone who could be the late, great painter Jean-Michel Basquiat.

“Chandlerier” by Hanksy … Lower East Side, New York

In this recent street art piece titled “Chandlerier,” the increasingly prolific Hanksy has made pun-tastic reference to the TV series “Friends” and one of its lead characters, Chandler (played by actor Matthew Perry). Here Chandler is portrayed comically dressed in a one-piece leotard and ballet slippers. The wheat-pasted artwork is on a utility door next to the entrance of the Untitled Gallery on Orchard Street in New York’s Lower East Side.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from New York’s Lower East Side!

Merry Christmas! Happy holidays! We’re in NYC this Christmas day and although we don’t usually get caught up in the holiday traditions — it’s just not our thing —  it’s nice to see a Christmas tree as we sip a hot Blue Bottle cappuccino on this very cold Christmas afternoon in New York’s Lower East Side. It’s also really nice to see the downtown streets so quiet, as most businesses are closed, except for this recent cafe addition to the LES espresso coffee scene called Whynot on Orchard Street.

Gandalf x James Gandolfini = “Gandalfini” by Hanksy

20131028-112417.jpg

One of the most recent punny wheat-paste street art pieces by Hanksy (not Banksy) is this mash-up of illustrated depictions of late actor James Gandolfini (The Sopranos) and the Lord of the Rings character Gandlaf in New York’s Lower East Side. Hence the title of this street artwork: “Gandalfini.” (Get it? Of course, you did, as we knew you would.) The artwork can be found on Orchard Street, just south of Grand Street, if the art-fashion “South of Delancey” area of the Lower East Side.

This recent work by Hanksy (a portmanteau of Banksy x Hanks, as in Tom Hanks) on Orchard Street in New York’s Lower East Side is a mash-up of graphics and illustration featuring a bald eagle with the head of actor Bryan Cranston, the star of the American television series “Breaking Bad.”

Skim Milk … New York City Graffiti

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.

A Bulldog Goes for a Walk in the Lower East Side

We got a visit from a bulldog while having our morning coffee at Lost Weekend NYC, a surf-themed espresso bar and gallery in the Lower East Side around the corner from our HQ. The dog was being walked along Orchard Street and suddenly
plopped down in front of our group of espresso junkies, stubbornly refusing to budge in spite of his owner’s commands. Like a boss.
