We’ve seen these mysterious circular stickers of a boy’s face around Los Angeles in recent weeks. The face is drawn in a style that reminds of the graphic novels of Charles Burns. There’s something a little creepy about the face. The eyes are beady and suggest evil thought. The stark blue-on-black drawing adds to the layer of darkness and intrigue. Send us a note if you know who the artist behind these stickers is or the story behind them.
We stumbled upon this sticker of the famous gummy-bear mugshot street art image by the artist WhIsBe on a locker door at the Equinox gym in SoHo, New York City. That’s probably the last place we ever expected to see street art.
Since the the 2011 reactor-meltdown disaster at the nuclear power plant in Fukushima, Japan, we’ve seen a lot of anti-nuke street art pop up in Tokyo, especially around Shibuya and Naka-Meguro. Often the artwork is in the form of a large sticker that features the line-drawing image of a little girl and the international nuclear symbol.
We stumbled upon this tiny, droll example of sticker street art on W. 47th Street in New York’s Hell’s Kitchen. The sticker art is a Sharpie-styled illustration of a laptop computer with audio lines emanating from the device.
