Kobra Anti-Gun Violence Mural, LES

On one of my recent Street Art Safaris, I found myself walking east on Eldridge Street, where I couldn’t help but notice more than a few stickers and small murals supporting anti-gun violence messages.  And then I saw this one: another work by Brazilian street artist Eduardo Kobra, whose work is instantly recognizable for its kaleidoscopic mosaic of bright colors. Kobra’s Stop Guns is a multi-story artwork depicting a young boy posing for a selfie, with his phone held up in one hand and a pistol gripped in the other. Very sobering. Appropriately, the piece is located adjacent to a parking lot beside Cascades High School.

Here’s well-preserved example of anonymous street artist WhIsBe’s Vandal Gummy series, for which he places an image of a Candy Gummy Bear against a Prison Mugshot Background. According to the artist’s Wiki page, “The juxtaposition between the harshness of the Department of Corrections and the innocence of the piece of candy encourages viewers to examine institutions and has become a hallmark of WhIsBe’s body of work.”

Claw Money Mural, Lower East Side

Claw Money (AKA Claudia Gold), whose Clawed Paw tag is all over the Lower East Side, is supposedly one of the most influential graffiti artists of all time, but, honestly, I never even heard of her or saw her art on the street until after she was a guest judge on the shitty reality series Street Art Throw-down, which was just an embarrassment.

Hey Bill, Just Admit It

Hey Bill Just Admit it

Street artist Flood is showing some support for the many ladies who have called out comedian Bill Cosby on charges of sexual assault, through a series of wheat pastes featuring characters from Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids, an animated TV show that ran from 1972 to 1985, which Cosby created based on kids he knew growing up in Northern Philadelphia.

Do you think Bill will ever “just admit it”? I’m not holding my breath.
