The F Train station at Second Avenue and East 2nd Street in the East Village was closed for renovations for part of this past summer, which means we had to do without new street art that is known to enhance the wall just adjacent to the entrance. You’ve seen me write about it before here, but really the mural changes every few months. This beautiful mural of a tiger’s face, which is called Power, went up in early November 2019 and it is the work of Key Detail (@keydetail), a muralist who also works with painting, drawing and illustrations. Key Detail is originally from Minsk, Belarus, but he is currently based here in New York City.

Obviously, I took these photos at night, and I am sure the mural looks quite different in the bight daylight. I will make an effort to pass by it again before it gets covered over, so that I can post some contrasting daytime shots! See more colorful artwork by Key Detail on his Website.

Hey, remember this post? Well, it looks like this wheat paste street art of a Shark swimming through the opening of a lowercase “b” on a child’s Alphabet Block is also the work of artist/activist Appleton.

F Train Entrance Stairs

I spotted this piece near the stairs leading to the F and M Train platform at 16th Street and 6th Avenue in Manhattan. If you look at the lower right hand corner of the above photo, you will see the remnants of an insulin vialnd a Campbell’s soup can (which says Cream of Insulin Soup) that are by this same artist.

Remember to always pay attention!

This Subway Sandwich Shop, located at Broadway and Pine Street in the Financial District, is nestled at the foot of a staircase leading up from an exit for the 4 and 5 trains at the Wall Street station.
