Boy in a Tree Mural by Artist Snyder … Carlsbad, California

We spotted this cute mural in the parking lot of a popular, local greasy-spoon Mexican food joint called Ceccy’s in Carlsbad, an affluent seaside village north of San Diego, California. The mural is signed by the artist Bryan Snyder and shows a boy who has climbed into a tree and is reaching out for a single leaf at the end of a branch. There are few leaves on the tree. Most of them have piled up on the ground below. The image quietly suggests that the boy may have disturbingly plucked all the leaves from the tree. The painting is rendered in style that looks like something you’d see in a children’s book illustration, adding an element of innocence and whimsy.

Best New Street Art of 2015 (So Far ) … NoHo, New York City

Granted, it’s only the second week of the new year, but cheeky blog-post title aside, this freshly painted street art by the Newark, New Jersey-based street artist “Mr. Mustart” is one of the best, strongest, most visually arresting street artworks we’ve seen in the past six months or so. The mural is near the northwest corner of Mott and Houston streets in NoHo, in downtown New York City, and it’s another in the series of public artworks in and around NYC from artists associated with the Green Villain gallery and studios in New Jersey. Great stuff.

What Iconic Tech Entrepreneur is the Inspiration for the Latest Wave of Street Art Hitting NYC?

Well it’s late Apple Computer co-founder and visionary Steve Jobs, of course. As the father of the much-loved iPod, iPhone, and iPad, Job’s legacy is a kind of ubiquitous presence in our daily lives whether or not we actually own and use an Apple device. iPhones are everywhere. Jobs’ iconic image is the basis of a rash of new street art popping up in downtown New York and Brooklyn this past week by the NYC-based artist who goes by the moniker UnCasso (a.k.a., UnCuttArt). The artworks are illustrated renderings of the photo by acclaimed Scottish photographer Albert Watson, and printed on heart-shaped paper in various colors and wheat-pasted to walls. Steve Jobs has been the inspiration and subject of street art previously, and his image used with other global icons.
