As the Covid Life moves into its sixth month, my daily walks occasionally lead to the ‘discovery’ of not-so-new street art that’s two blocks from my apartment. Just being serious. Recently, I became acquainted with this monumental mural that takes up the entire side of a five-story apartment building, and features a sea of innumerable faceless Charlie Browns. The centermost Charlie stands atop a pitcher’s mound, gloved up and waiting for . . . what, exactly? 2020 to end? Aren’t we all.

The artist is the very famous Jerkface, whose work is recognizable for using well-known cartoon characters, but with a twist, relying on the 1st Amendment to avoid copyright claims.

The mural was completed in October of 2014 and, despite significant fading of the once vibrant yellow and green paint, it still looks pretty good after six years of exposure to the elements. Charlie and his faceless clones adorn the eastern exposure of Icon Realty-owned 402 E. 12th Street (just east of 1st Avenue) and overlook a street hockey court just adjacent to the Lower East Side Playground.

When the playground is open, you can snap a pic like this through the chainlink fence.

Jerkface is one of my favorite street artists for his use of popular, easily recognized cartoon characters in his sightly skewed cultural visions. This double-vision mural of Mickey Mouse went upon May of 2018 and it still looks pretty good!

While people will tell you that this piece is at Houston and Mott, you can see from the above photo that it is set quite far in on Mott Street, between Houston and Bleecker.

HomerBob: The Homer Simpson SpongeBob MashUp Mural On Stanton Street

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.

This delightful Pink Panther Mural by the Queens-based street artist known as Jerkface was photographed by me on Morgan Avenue between Ingraham Street and Johnson Avenue in Bushwick, Brooklyn.

Signage indicates that the building houses Max Cellar, a new music venue located in the basement below the now closed Amancay’s Diner. The front entrance of the building is at 2 Knickerbocker Ave.
