The Story Behind A Charming Street Art Enigma: The Spray Paints Series

While most of the street art that I discover on my adventures is clearly tagged, sometimes that tag is hard to decipher, and I need some assistance identifying the artist. By connecting with artists on Instagram, I’ve learned that they all seem to know and support each other, which is cool and very helpful.  If I don’t know the artist behind a work that I want to put on the blog, and the first person I ask doesn’t know, then they know someone who does. This is how I ended up connecting with the creator of an unsigned series of works that I’ve been seeing on the streets, and documenting, since around Christmastime last year. Each of the paste-ups in this very distinctive series features one to three still life images accompanied by a one-word title, and the artist’s signature conspicuously absent. If you live in the east village or downtown, there’s no way you haven’t seen them. All I can say is that they speak to me.

Pink Thing of The Day: Pink Neon Roses

Wonderworld Space was an attraction that existed in Williamsburg, Brooklyn for a few months this past fall. Located in a big pink warehouse, Wonderworld was fitted with multiple, Instagram-able rooms, each housing a themed-fantasy scenario in which selfie-obsessed young ladies could stage impromptu photo shoots. Yawn City. In other words, it was a total waste of time for normal people like me to go there unless you could get in for $5 (regular admission price: $25), which we did. Because anything is worth $5. I got a few blog-worthy snaps out of the visit, so it was money well-spent. These Pink Neon Roses floating around the word Love were part of a room with different neon art on each of its four walls. I’m not sure how good selfies come out when taken in a room that is mostly dark, but I think this shot looks pretty cool without people in it.

Jayson Naylor’s murals are easy to recognize for his use of bold, psychedelic colors and pop culture images wrapped around an uplifting message. This piece, which is on the side a store located at the northeast corner of Grand Street and Bedford Avenue in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, is called Indulge in Love. As you can see, Jayson has spelled out the word LOVE using images of things we all love to indulge in, such as  . . .

Jayson also a has a piece on the building behind this one, which is only partially visible from street level, so I’m afraid I cannot tell you what that one says. Indulge In Love went up in August of 2019.

Artist Curtis Kulig’s popular Love Me campaign can be found on everything from Tote Bags and Baseball Caps to Jewelry and Nike sneakers. But sometimes you just see it out on the street, where it originated.

This minimalist mural, which just says Love twice in black and again in pink paint, was spotted while I was headed uptown on Sixth Avenue, somewhere between Dominick and Spring Street in SoHo, NYC.

Okay, judging from the multiple layers this is probably a Wedding cake, dontcha think? It may be a Birthday cake, but whatever the occasion, it is the Greatest Cake Ever in the Universe of All Time, because The Beatles! I bet it tastes delicious also, but, honestly, it is almost too cool to eat!
