The annual Five Points Festival Designer Toy and Comic Show is coming up this weekend, June 1st and 2nd, and I am very excited to be attending for my second year! Coincidentally, I happened to walk by the above mural, located on Allen Street, a few weeks ago, unaware that it was originally created to honor the first-ever Five Points Fest, back in May of 2017. Apparently, the owners of the Allen Hotel reactivated a relationship with the Little Italy Street Art (LISA) Project  to bring street artist KaNO to the corner of Allen and Rivington Street, and this 40-foot mural was the result! Sweet!

A lady holding a potted cactus seems like an apropos image to usher in the spring, but this mural by artist Sara Erenthal has actually been up since September of 2018. You can find this work at the corner of Delancey and Allen Streets, where you previously saw This Piece and This Collaboration!

Sara even left this tag on the sidewalk near the mural, which is part of The New Allen project!

Melbourne, Australia-based street muralist Mike Maka (#MkeMakatron) ravelled a long way to make this visually-seductive contribution to NYC’s The New Allen mural project.

Find this lovely lady near the northwest corner of Delancey and Allen, just north of the Subway Sandwich Shop. As long as this stays up, it will remind us of the warmer day of summer, now that the cooler fall weather has arrived!

Part of The New Allen project, this cheerful Blue Gecko by street artist DJ Neff (#djn3ff) snakes playfully down the front of 134 Allen Street, just below Delancey.

If you check him out from the east side of the street, he appears to be emerging from the mouth of a scary-looking cat, while a resting Avocado looks on!

Patch Whisky Storefront Mural on Allen Street

The New Allen (#TheNewAllen) is an on-going public art project where different street artists are commissioned to paint murals on the walls and the storefront gates along Allen Street between Canal and Houston (where Allen turns into First Avenue). This one, done in the very distinctive style of South Carolina-based muralist Patch Whisky (real name Rich Miller) was spotted on the west side of Allen adjacent to number 129.  I think this piece is called the Candy Bandit, but I am not sure. Anyway, I love it.

Here’s another one of #TheNewAllen project murals, this one being located on the west side of Allen just above Delancey Street. This one is a collaboration between two street artists, Patch Whisky and Ghost Beard, who have worked together previously on murals in other US cities.

I wish I had gotten to this mural before the D-Bag taggers did. Don’t Call Me Baby by Baron Von Fancy is part of #TheNewAllen murals project on the store fronts along Allen Street on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. You can see many of them if you take the M15 Bus route south of Houston Street!

NOTE: Since this photo was taken, the mural has been repainted with identical text, but with different florescent colors highlighting each word.

If you know where to look, you can find dozens of tile mosaic artworks by French street artist Invader all over Manhattan, including this one of Leonardo of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, which sits above Williamsburg Pizza at the corner of Broome and Allen Streets.

Claw Money Mural, Lower East Side

Claw Money (AKA Claudia Gold), whose Clawed Paw tag is all over the Lower East Side, is supposedly one of the most influential graffiti artists of all time, but, honestly, I never even heard of her or saw her art on the street until after she was a guest judge on the shitty reality series Street Art Throw-down, which was just an embarrassment.
