One thing leads to another, as they say. I was actually in the middle of an urban Art Safari for this project when I looked west across Chrystie Street and saw something that looked very familiar to me.
The interwebs tell me that back in August of 2015, the Brazilian twin aritsts Os Gemeos joined up with French wheat-paster JR to decorate the brick facade of 199 Chrystie Street. You can see the three trademark Os Gemeos characters: two interacting with / tagging the architecture, with one holding up a sign bearing JR’s signature eyeball graphic. Fun!
A reminder to look up more often!
This Mural is Located at 199 Chrystie Street, LES, NYC.
In these photos, what looks like a wearable Eyeball Dress is actually a sculpture, make up of tiny ceramic tiles, called Million Eyes Woman, by artist Marek Zyga. Photographed at the Evan Lurie Gallery Booth at the Summer 2015 Affordable Art Fair in NYC.

Oh, there is just so much to say about this Obey Mozart poster, which I spotted on Bowery near Spring Streetover the weekend. First of all, the poster was not designed by artist Shepard Fairey, although it was sanctioned by him. The design is a knock off of the poster you see below:
This Obey Thoven (Beethoven) poster was designed by New York Ad Agency Eyeball for classical radio station WQXR’s Beethoven Appreciation Month, which runs throughout November 2013. Oh, the cleverness!
