Eagle Eye Fish Mural on East 2nd Street

I passed by this enigmatic mural, located on the north side of 2nd Street, just west of First Avenue, (right next to Julie’s Vintage) while on the way to meet Geoffrey for lunch. Part Eagle, part, Eyeball and part Fish, this work of street art really has everything! The artist’s signature is visible in the lower, right corner of the above image, but I am unable to decipher it or find him or her via a search for “Jomac” —  which is what the signature appears to say.  Any clues on the artist’s identity, please leave it in the comments – thanks!

Statue of Liberty Mural By Sego, East Harlem

I was walking west from the 6 train at 103rd Street on the way to the Museum of the City of New York when I spotted this very cool mural, which looked to me at first like a Native American interpretation of the Statue of Liberty. It turns out that the artist is Mexican muralist Sego, and this striking piece is done in his signature organic style. Entitled Freedom and Emancipation of The Natural World, the mural was painted for the Monument Art Festival, which took place in October of 2015.

You can see the Mural for Yourself at the Corner of Madison Avenue and 104th Street.

Zesoner Mural on 13th Street

This intriguing mural by graffiti artist Zesoner — which depicts his stylized tag “Zeso” — went up on the southeast corner of 13th Street at First Avenue back in 2015, but it still looks vibrant despite a year’s exposure to the elements! The orange and white-striped Traffic Cones that look like Lighthouses are one of Zeso’s signature motifs. See more of his fun work at Zeso Art Dot Com!

I spotted this D*Face mural of a lovely blonde on Broome Street between Crosby and Lafayette Streets in Soho, NYC. These photos were taken around 5 PM, when the position of the sun makes it look pretty washed out. This mural is part of the Lisa Project.

I passed by this mural, by UK-based street artist Sweet Toof, while walking up Flushing Avenue in Brooklyn on the way to the Great Big Bacon Picnic. I have no idea how long it’s been up, but the building is near the corner of Whipple Street.

Here’s another one of #TheNewAllen project murals, this one being located on the west side of Allen just above Delancey Street. This one is a collaboration between two street artists, Patch Whisky and Ghost Beard, who have worked together previously on murals in other Us cities.

In honor of today (September 21st) being World Peace Day, we’d like to introduce you to Miami, Florida-based street artist and Peace Advocate Renda Writer and his one-man World Peace Mural Tour: which recently saw him creating two of his multicolored-text-based World Peace wall murals here in the New York area.

“My murals involve me writing the simple two-word phrase “World Peace,” repeated over and over, in various color patterns,” Writer explains. “I combine the energetic power of a written mantra with the stylistic visuals of typography, graffiti, and public art and utilize the influence and high visibility of public art to spread the simple message: “World Peace.”

Here’s a little video I made of Writer working on the mural on Sunday, September 11th.

Since conceiving the idea in April of this year, Writer has created 14 such murals in 7 different states including Florida, North Carolina, Virginia, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Washington DC, and most recently in New York City — where these photos and the above video were taken on September 10th and 11th — and in Mamaroneck, in Westchester County, New York on September 17th.  “These murals, as  part of my World Peace Mural Tour, are my commitment to spending the rest of my life creating “World Peace” themed murals across the world.”

“Through the simple message of ‘World Peace,’  the aim is to bring World Peace into the global conversation and remind the people of the world that it is possible. This is my life’s purpose.” More information about the tour can be found at World Peace Tour Dot Com and Facebook Dot Com Slash World Peace Mural Tour.
