Ah, pandemic-themed street art: I love it. Slum Sex (spray-painted sometimes in Pink, and sometimes not) is a tag by renegade street artist Schizo 27 (@shizo27), who is a member of the 2wo 7even Bandits; a crew that actually rejects the name ‘crew’ and instead refer to themselves as a team of art ‘Bandits.’ This, I  also love. All members of the 2wo 7even Bandits add the number 27 to their tags.

The 2wo 7even Bandits occasionally hold free Street Art Shows, where they paint discarded items (also known as trash) and buyers can pick up anything that strikes their fancy. Follow them on Instagram (@2wo_7even_bandits), for more information!

Pink Thing of The Day: Buff Monster Box Truck!

The Covid Life walks have lead me to all sorts of unexpected, magical discoveries! That might have something to do with the fact that I am now regularly exploring streets that, three months ago, I did not know existed. Case in point: Columbia Street. “Where The Fuck is That” you ask? It’s on the LES near Delancey, and walking north it eventually turns into Avenue D. But it was on Columbia Street,  that I saw this box truck idling in front of a grocery store, bearing Buff Monster’s awesome pink tag, along with his signature Mr. Melty character. Sweet.

Pink Thing Of The Day: Pink Spray-Painted Bird Mural

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.

I see the Street Tag “Sheep” — with the second ‘e’ written backwards — all over downtown, and today I saw it in this variation. The artist is Little Ricky.  Photographed on Houston walking east from Sixth Avenue.

I was on a Street Art Safari when I came upon this big game; a  mural of Prince (RIP), located on the side of the Graffiti Room restaurant at the corner of Kenmare and Mott Streets in downtown Manhattan. It looks like they are also having an Instagram contest:

So, head on down to the  Graffiti Room and get to snapping and ‘gramming!

I would like to see this cat become the new Grumpy Cat Meme. Because Grumpy Cat, no me gusta. Spotted on a building on Berry Street near North 12th Street in Williamsberg, Brooklyn.

This Street Art Tag of a Silver Sphere sporting Dark Shades and a Protruding Tongue can be seen around the Chelsea Gallery District neighborhood adorning various surfaces, from the above mail box to a van I saw parked just a few blocks from where this photo was taken, at the corner of Tenth Avenue and 20th Street. If anyone knows the artist or what this tag is called, please leave it in the comments – thanks!
