The legendary French graffiti and stencil artist Blek Le Rat was in town recently to do some press for his current solo exhibit in the Chelsea Gallery District.

One of the more recent additions to the First Street Green Art Park is this horned skull mural, entitled Thorns, by prolific street artist K-NOR. You can see a time-lapse video of this mural going up over a two-day period in August at K-NOR’s Instagram, @itskaynor.

This piece went up in early March, 2019. Find out more about Lang and see work from her extensive portfolio, at This Link!
