Baby Face Street Art in NYC

This wheat-paste street art (or “wheatie”) of a super cute, larger-than-life baby face by artist “Mactrukk” has been popping up around New York City lately, including at a spot on the famous graffiti-covered former bank building owned and inhabited by photographer Jay Maisel at the corner on Spring Street and the Bowery in the Lower East Side, as pictured below.

New York Street Art … “Smoke Trees”

20140330-134329.jpg

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.

Grampa SoHo … New York Street Art

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.
