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.
I was on a Street Art Safari when I came upon this big game; a mural of Prince (RIP), located on the side of the Graffiti Room restaurant at the corner of Kenmare and Mott Streets in downtown Manhattan. It looks like they are also having an Instagram contest:
So, head on down to the Graffiti Room and get to snapping and ‘gramming!
We’re not feeling the spring weather quite yet, but once it warms up a bit, I think any hip five year old girl would love to rock this Biggie Smalls T-Shirt paired with a White Tulle Tutu and accessorized with a novelty Ice Cream Cone Pendent. I wish this outfit came in my size, is all I’m sayin’. Available at Piccolini NYC on Mott Street.
A true multidisciplinary artist if ever one existed, Joseph Arthur is not only an astoundingly talented Musician and Painter, but one of the kindest and coolest individuals I’ve had the pleasure to meet. It is genuinely exciting to continue to cover Joseph’s career as he blows minds for a living here in New York City. Joseph has a new exhibit of original paintings up now called Phone Calls from Leviathans (such a great title) at Amy Li Projects, which is inside this Button Store:
Fortunately, these paintings of Joe’s are also displayed in the window, to help catch your eye as you approach!
