This stenciled “Smoke Trees” wheat-pasted street art poster in the Lower East Side of New York City has a graphical, lo-fi propaganda feel. The bear iconography and message harkens to Smoky the Bear and public service ad campaigns to create awareness about forest fire prevention. The message here is subversive and explicit, though unclear. The colors are beautiful and and make for a striking visual on the side of the general clutter of the graffiti- and street art-bombed Jay Maisel Building at the corner of Spring Street and the Bowery.
Another one of those “Grampa” wheat-paste street art pieces we see mostly around SoHo. The image always reminds of of Alfred Hitchcock. Usually these are in color and signed by the artist. This one is unusual insofar that it’s a black-and-white line drawing and has “Soho” written on it. We found this one in a doorway on Spring Street in Nolita / Lower East Side.
“You and Me” wheat-paste street art with a mix of typographic styles. This street-art piece in on the Spring Street side of the famous “Jay Maisel building” on the Bowery in the Lower East Side of New York City.
