The F Train station at Second Avenue and East 2nd Street in the East Village was closed for renovations for part of this past summer, which means we had to do without new street art that is known to enhance the wall just adjacent to the entrance. You’ve seen me write about it before here, but really the mural changes every few months. This beautiful mural of a tiger’s face, which is called Power, went up in early November 2019 and it is the work of Key Detail (@keydetail), a muralist who also works with painting, drawing and illustrations. Key Detail is originally from Minsk, Belarus, but he is currently based here in New York City.
Obviously, I took these photos at night, and I am sure the mural looks quite different in the bight daylight. I will make an effort to pass by it again before it gets covered over, so that I can post some contrasting daytime shots! See more colorful artwork by Key Detail on his Website.
