Love Letters

Spray paint graffiti collage of hearts and stylized lettering

Starting at the top of the gate with a somewhat pedestrian “love” stencil and polka dot banner, the eye travels down into a row of hearts through the chaotic layers of lettering and finally resting once again on the rough hewn hearts. It would seem the security lights in the top corners have not dispersed people from adding signatures on top of this piece, unfortunately muddling the original theme.

Lower East Side, Manhattan.

Jungle

"Summer in the Jungle" mural

Plaque describing the "Summer in the Jungle" mural

Here’s part of a larger mural and I’ll leave the description up to the artist (conveniently with a plaque!). I’m always in favor of more public art even if I find this piece a bit tame. And even if it comes with corporate sponsors. Bring on the color and chaos!

West Side, Manhattan.

Die Happy

Mural of a woman's face with a speech bubble saying "Die happy tonight"

The lettering in the speech bubble is great, a little bit of calligraphy in the hand written style. Having the woman’s eyes closed also brings emotion to this large piece.

West Side, Manhattan.

A large mural on a bridge overpass. Really like the color and modern abstract patterns. Not sure why we can’t paint everything in the city this way.
