Flashing back to a fun day spent at the Five Points Festival back in June, 2018, we remember passing by this epic likeness of Brazilian model Paula Almeida by artist Angel A. You can see it for yourself at the southeast corner of West Street and Milton Street in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.
I’ve been noticing this mural out the window of the M15 SBS bus as it speeds up Allen Street during my journey home from work on selected evenings. From the look of it, I assumed this was just a mural of Homer Simpson’s face peaking out from the side of a building on Stanton Street. But on closer inspection, it proved to be much more.
Anyone who is up on their pop culture would recognize the hand at the left as belonging to the beloved cartoon character — and star of his own Broadway musical — SpongeBob SquarePants, and when you closely examine Homer’s face, he has quite obviously taken on the complexion of SpongeBob. Thus, this is HomerBob, the creation of street artist Jerkface.
He’s just next to the MeatBall Shop! Yummy!
Hey, check out this fun Graffiti Wall, which I spotted on Spring Street just west of Hudson Street, where the works of various different street artists are represented, including CON$UMR (Love Spray) and Libby Schoettle (Phoebe New York), and child street artist Ethan Armen (who is currently 9 years old!) among many others. What I want know though is who make this awesome Legless Cow? Tips in the Comments, Please!
Swedish graffiti artist André (André Saraiva, AKA Monsieur André or Mr. A) revists a classic Peanuts comic strip scenario as Snoopy interacts with Saraiva’s signature stick-figure doodle, Mr. A, on the wall of a downtown parking lot.
Part of The Peanuts Global Artist Collective, This Piece was Spotted at 304 Hudson Street at Spring Street in SoHo, NYC.
I passed by this enigmatic mural, located on the north side of 2nd Street, just west of First Avenue, (right next to Julie’s Vintage) while on the way to meet Geoffrey for lunch. Part Eagle, part, Eyeball and part Fish, this work of street art really has everything! The artist’s signature is visible in the lower, right corner of the above image, but I am unable to decipher it or find him or her via a search for “Jonac” — which is what the signature appears to say. Any clues on the artist’s identity, please leave it in the comments – thanks!
Note: The artist has been correctly identified as Lonac in the comments below, many thanks!!
It’s been a few weeks now since I first noticed the Green Monster Hand giving what looks like some kind of a two-finger salute of unknown meaning (I don’t think the fingers are spread apart enough to make it a proper peace sign, but I could be wrong). I can’t say when exactly it went up, but considering I pass by this block (Avenue B between 13th and 14th Streets) almost daily, I think it’s relatively new.
I like it.
