In a fairly eventful week that included a Street Art Safari, Valentine’s Day, my birthday, three museum visits, and a Chelsea art crawl, my most popular Instagram post of the past week is this fabulous Bling Skull hood ornament emerging from the softly gathering snow. When you have an iPhone at-the-ready, art is everywhere.

When you are walking on the street, remember not only to look down, to avoid stepping in dog poo, but also to look up, so you can spot cool street art like this Pink Skull sticker by artist Matt Siren!
One of the more recent additions to the First Street Green Art Park is this horned skull mural, entitled Thorns, by prolific street artist K-NOR. You can see a time-lapse video of this mural going up over a two-day period in August at K-NOR’s instagram, @itskaynor.
The Graffiti Box Truck is not that rare of a thing in NYC; you see them all the time. But what is rare is one that features contributions from maybe a half-dozen graffiti artists from across the globe. This one features tags and murals from Scaner (Canada), Harry Bones (Spain), RASK (Los Angeles), Hoacs (NYC), MUSA (Spain) and others, and that’s just what I could see on the two sides of the truck that I was able to shoot from the sidewalk!
From what I could gather from Google searches, this truck has been on the street at least since 2018.
