We set out on a very satisfying Street Art Safari this past weekend in Williamsburg, Brooklyn — a great neighborhood to in which to capture the Big Game, such as this really vibrant Cobra Mural by the artist known as Woodz. This mural is located on the south side of North 8th Street just east of Berry Street.

Here is a photo of the full mural, taken from its west end. You can see that an Eagle is also involved.

Here’s a better shot of the Eagle. Woodz is also a tattoo artist and owner of Magic Cobra Tattoo Society in Brooklyn. See more of his work at This Link!

This cool mural of what I’d call a Mechanical Wasp (though I don’t know the mural’s official title, or even if it has one) is painted on the side of the apartment building at 62 Avenue B, near 5th Street, in the East Village. It was created by the artist Ludo for the Lo Man Art Festival in August of 2015.

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!

I pass this mural often on the way to the Chelsea Art Galleries, but yesterday was the first time I’ve stopped long enough to photograph it. A collaboration between Brazilian Street Artists and twin brothers, Os Gemeos, and American graffiti artist Futura, this fun piece went up in early 2015.

I’m not sure of the exact location of this painting of a giant Yellow Prancing Cat with Wings and a huge Cheshire Cat-like Grin, but it is visible from the High Line Park, somewhere between 30th and 20th Streets.

Here it is with slightly more perspective, if that helps.
