This cool Koi Fish stencil art is one of the better-known images in the oeuvre of California-based Street Artist/Activist Jeremy Novy.

I passed by it over the weekend and it looks darn good for its age.
Here’s a view of that corner from the traffic island in the middle of Bowery. And doesn’t This look familiar?
