New York Street Art … “Snow White” by Invader

20140408-144520.jpg

This street art mosaic image of “Snow White” is by the French artist Invader (a.k.a., “Space Invader”) on the wall of a diner in New York City. The artwork is made up of small tiles like all of Invader’s street art pieces, but the use of the animated Disney character Snow White represents a sharp departure in the pop-culture imagery the artist is famous for referencing, namely the iconic graphics of 1980s videogame Space Invader. The “Snow White” artwork pictured above is at the corner of Delancey and Essex streets in New York’s Lower East Side and near the famous “blue” condo building (left) by architect Bernard Tschumi.

Street Art … “Curb Your Ego” Sign in Brooklyn

“Curb Your Ego” strikes this stretch of wall in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. It’s a cheeky piece of street art playing on the usual visual grammar of municipal street signage, and it never fails to amuse, especially when placed near an art gallery. 🙂

Street Art … Skeleton Portrait of Fashion Editor Diana Vreeland by Bradley Theodore

Recent street art painting by Bradley Theodore depicting legendary Vogue magazine editor Diana Vreeland. The artwork is on Lafayette Street between Prince and Spring streets in SoHo, in downtown New York City. Theodore’s street art images are portraits of iconic figures from the fashion world rendered as colorful, grotesque skeletons. He’s done paintings of Anna Wintour, Karl Lagerfeld, and Terry Richardson. We love it.

Street Art … “Army of One” + Cat Stencils in NYC

These cats stencils can be found all over New York City, but we see a lot of them in the Hell’s Kitchen and Chelsea neighborhoods for some reason. Of greater significance is the “Army of One” graffiti, which is work and moniker of New York-based artist Jef Campion, a.k.a., JC2, who we heard sadly passed away last week. Campion was the artist responsible for some very powerful street art, especially an artwork that remixed that famous Diane Arbus photo of a boy holding a hand grenade. The artist Fumero, who was an occasional collaborator, has written a brief, moving piece about Campion.

Gandalf x James Gandolfini = “Gandalfini” by Hanksy

20131028-112417.jpg

One of the most recent punny wheat-paste street art pieces by Hanksy (not Banksy) is this mash-up of illustrated depictions of late actor James Gandolfini (The Sopranos) and the Lord of the Rings character Gandlaf in New York’s Lower East Side. Hence the title of this street artwork: “Gandalfini.” (Get it? Of course, you did, as we knew you would.) The artwork can be found on Orchard Street, just south of Grand Street, if the art-fashion “South of Delancey” area of the Lower East Side.
