This pink spray paint rendering of what I interpret to be the Head of a Mayan Warrior is tagged on a brick wall on East 10th Street between Avenues B and C. I was originally going to include it in this past Tuesday’s post on My East Village Covid Experience, but thought better of that, because I needed a Pink Thing for this week. Any port in a storm.
I was on my was to Beyond The Streets when I passed by a vacant lot, and noticed this fun Pink Bird which had been spray-painted on an adjacent wall. The tag says “Nico,” but I can’t find a street artist with that tag in the Google. So, whatever. This is on Kent Street just north of North 7th Street, in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
Just in time for Spring, the First Street Green Art Park has turned over a new batch of cool and colorful murals, such as this one by Brooklyn-based multi-media artist Grace Lang, AKA Grooseling. This piece went up in early March, 2019. Find out more about Lang and see work from her extensive portfolio, at This Link!
Hey, if you need to find a way to come out to your Mom, and she is also a Star Wars Fan, maybe you can do so via this fun poster, which I spotted on Gansevoort Street out front of the Whitney Museum. You can buy this piece, and other work by artist Denis Ouch via Artfinder at This Link.
Hey, here’s a simple, cost-effective and undeniably creative way to liven-up an ordinary, bland blue recycling bin that you might have sitting out back on your patio, or in the basement or garage, or wherever. All you need are hands, a few cans of spray paint and little bit of an aesthetic feel for what colors look good together.
I saw this bin in the backyard of artist Mark Kostabi, who works for Total Waste Disposal WA. I can’t say if Mark actually did the painting, but it pleases me to imagine that he did.
