Needs. We all have them. And who doesn’t need a “shady palm.” That is, a palm that just doesn’t provide shade, but wears shades. A palm tree that sports sunglasses.
What more could one want? Well, sun-protection eyewear aside, we need a palm tree that can handle a skateboard. A palm that can shred the boardwalk and the skate park.
This small, cartoony wheat-paste street art is a cute visual pun. The artist is New York City-based artist Raddington Falls, a.k.a., “RAD.” Find “Shady Palm” on Abbot Kinney Blvd. in Venice, Los Angeles.
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
