“Eyes, Mouth, Body, Feet …” Street Art … Venice, Los Angeles

This hilarious wheat-paste street art on an old clapboard bungalow in Venice looks like a child’s Crayola drawing of a human body. Or is it a robot? No matter. Various parts of the body are called out: Eyes, mouth, hands, etc. Which reminds us of a children’s educational song, the kind use to teach kids in pre-school. But we think an adult may have had a hand in the creation of this artwork (aside from illegally posting it) because where logic would suggest the word “butt” it instead says “shit.”

Street Art … Monkey with Money in NYC

These “Monkey Money” street art wheat-pastes (“wheaties”) and stickers have been dotting walls around New York City for a while now. Here’s a tiny one we found on Ludlow Street not far form Global Graphica HQ in the Lower East Side.

Why are All These Awesome Street Art Images of A Young Michael Jackson Appearing Everywhere?

We recently started seeing a random few of these wheat-paste street art images of a young, Jackson 5-era Michael Jackson appearing on walls around downtown Manhattan. But then this past weekend, these seemed to multiply exponentially and appear everywhere, from the Lower East Side to Brooklyn’s Greenpoint. In the LES, we counted dozens of the “Young MJs” on Ludlow Street alone. These Young MJ wheat-pastes are the work of a mysterious New York-based “celebrity stylist” and artist who goes by the moniker “UnCasso” (a.k.a., “UnCuttArt”). The “Young MJs” come in a variety of colors . In some cases, as pictured below, a single, larger image is composited with several pieces in different colors. Needless to say, we love ’em. This isn’t the first time the “King of Pop” has inspired street art.

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.

Here’s another one of those street art wheat-paste-ups of actress and singer Selena Gomez.  There are a bunch of variations on the Gomez theme. This one has the Spanish words “Sin Fronteras” (English translation: “without limits”).

Coke as Chemical Weapon … NYC Street Art

We were pleasantly surprised to this fresh wheat-paste street art as we arrived Friday at Global Graphica in New York’s Lower East Side. The artwork is virtually spitting distance from our HQ. The “wheatie” is a graphical mash-up of Coca-Cola brand identity and an illustration of a bomb. The weapon has been conceived as consumer product, and the words “Chemical Warfare” have been written in “on-brand” old-timey cursive lettering, suggesting that Coke’s globally popular soda drink is as harmful as nerve gas.

Fresh Street Art by Con Artist Collective

This boldly graphic wheat-paste street art poster by Con Artist Collective just went up on a building hoarding at the corner of Broome and Allen streets, in the art-fashion part of the Lower East Side, in New York. The artwork was inspired by the classic Japanese sci-fi comic “Akira,” and is a mash-up of Japanese manga imagery, as well as a layer of stylized Japanese-like kanji typography.
