This is the work of the New York-based artist Swoon, whose street art can be found plastered on buildings throughout downtown Manhattan neighborhoods like SoHo, Chinatown, TriBeCa and the Lower East Side. Usually Swoon’s images depict people engaged in some street-level activity. Here a man is riding a bicycle. The pictures are typicaly drawn and painted over old newsprint, usually local Chinese newspapers, and then plastered onto some exterior surface. Another one of Swoon’s famous images shows a guy sitting on a milk crate.
