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.

Pink Thing of The Day: Pink Baby Doll Faces in the Chelsea Gallery District (And Elsewhere!)

I first started noticing the mysterious Pink Baby Doll Faces as they popped up here and there in my Instagram feed. When I realized there were quite a few scattered all over what is obviously NYC’s Chelsea Gallery District — because of course they are — Geoffrey and I went out on an Urban Art Safari.

11th Avenue and 25th Street

A little bit of Googling revealed to me that the Pink Baby Doll Faces started showing up in Denver back in Spring of 2016. I couldn’t find any information on the artist. The origin of the Baby Doll Faces is truly a mystery!

They are fun to spot. Go exploring with friend and turn it into a game!

2 Pink Baby Doll Faces

There are a few different faces, which appear to be made of cast Plaster of Paris and then painted pink (or sometimes violet). Some have hair and others do not.

You can find this wheat paste mural of a Little Girl Blowing Bubbles at 540 West 20th Street, near 11th Avenue, in the Chelsea Gallery District. It was created by Brazilian Graffitti artist Gustavo Nénão in 2014 and still looks great!

Lakwena’s Lift You Higher Mural at Houston and Bowery

Back in October of 2017, a new work by London-based artist, Lakwena Mciver took over the Bowery Mural Wall, located at the intersection of Houston and Bowery. The colorful, kaleidescopic piece, which reads Lift You Higher, is actually part of a marketing stunt for Instagram’s #KindComments campaign, in partnership with Goldman Properties, which owns and curates the wall.

Lift You Higher

As part of the campaign, Instagram is working with artists to turn walls around the world into murals that spread kindness through uplifting art. Instagram encourages its users to take photos or videos of the walls, and share #KindComments “to make someone’s day.” Lakwena Maciver is just the fourth woman of 22 artists who have been commissioned to work on the wall.

Os Gemeos with JR Collaborative Mural on Chrystie Street

One thing leads to another, as they say. I was actually in the middle of an urban Art Safari for this project when I looked west across Chrystie Street and saw something that looked very familiar to me.

Os Gemeos and JR Mural

The interwebs tell me that back in August of 2015, the Brazilian twin aritsts Os Gemeos joined up with French wheat-paster JR to decorate the brick facade of 199 Chrystie Street. You can see the three trademark Os Gemeos characters: two interacting with / tagging the architecture, with one holding up a sign bearing JR’s signature eyeball graphic. Fun!

A reminder to look up more often!

This Mural is Located at 199 Chrystie Street, LES, NYC.
