While it’s been hot and steamy for a few weeks already, the official first day of Summer, June 21st, has arrived at last. Despite the inherent stickiness of a NYC summer it is, hands down, my favorite season of the year. Summer ushers in a feeling of joy and freedom that cannot concisely be put into words, and I am so ready to launch into three months of crazy fun. Feel free to share the reasons why you love summer, in the comments!

Street art aficionados know that Freeman Alley is the premier spot on the LES for checking out contemporary street art as it is happening. The alley’s visual landscape of wheat pastes, stickers and stencils changes daily, so I like to head over there a few times a month to see what’s new and share the best discoveries here on the site. It was during a visit in mid-February that I started seeing the art of Goldloxe in a series of paste-ups depicting  nearly identical little girls — wearing baby doll dresses,  Mary Janes shoes and bobby socks — which are part of her Just a Girl collection. For Goldloxe, these girls are all about “Celebrating unapologetic women who won’t stop pushing boundaries and challenging the status quo.” Heck yeah!

Street artist Aida Miro (@aidamiro) painted this vibrant Pink Ganesh, the elephant-headed Hindu God of Beginnings, back in November of 2021, but I  saw it for the first time on May14th and was so happy  find it untagged and looking like it was freshly painted!

According to this source, “Lord Ganesha clears all obstacles and paves the way for us to move forward in life. The large elephant head of Lord Ganesha symbolizes wisdom, understanding, and a discriminating intellect that one must possess to attain perfection in life.” Miro has also added the phrase “Rise By Lifting Others.” Sweet.

The Mural is Located in NYC’s East Village, on Sixth Street Just East of First Avenue (Next to a Duncan Donuts).

At first glance, it may appear as if this car has been vandalized, but when you really examine it from all sides, it’s pretty obvious that it’s a work of mobile street art from the artist known as Mad Steez.
