I have no idea how long this pastel-hued NYC Skyline mural by San Framciso-based street artist Dirt Cobain has been up, but my guess is that it’s a couple of years old, based on its relatively decent condition.
This identifying banner sits at the west end of the mural, which covers the service door of a local business at the southwest corner of West 24th Street at Sixth Avenue.
Next time I walk by this street, I’ll try to a get photo from across the street, when business has its door shut.
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.
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.
You can find this wheat paste mural of a Little Girl Blowing Bubbles at 540 West 20th Street, near 11th Avenue, in the Chelsea Gallery District. It was created by Brazilian Graffitti artist Gustavo Nénão in 2014 and still looks great!
