A lady holding a potted cactus seems like an apropos image to usher in the spring, but this mural by artist Sara Erenthal has actually been up since September of 2018. You can find this work at the corner of Delancey and Allen Streets, where you previously saw This Piece and This Collaboration!

Sara even left this tag on the sidewalk near the mural, which is part of The New Allen project!

Melbourne, Australia-based street muralist Mike Maka (#MkeMakatron) ravelled a long way to make this visually-seductive contribution to NYC’s The New Allen mural project.

Find this lovely lady near the northwest corner of Delancey and Allen, just north of the Subway Sandwich Shop. As long as this stays up, it will remind us of the warmer day of summer, now that the cooler fall weather has arrived!

Kanye West As Saint Sebastian

Kanye West is a person who embodies everything that is pathetic and sad about pop culture. The fact that he is married to a Kardashian sister and worships Dump makes him even more repugnant to me.  I don’t really see how he has fans, but there is no accounting for taste. This mural by street artist Sac Six  portrays West as Saint Sebastian. More importantly, it is a take on the famous cover of Esquire magazine from April, 1968 that portrayed prizefighter Muhammad Ali as the famous martyr, which makes it even more polarizing. The mural is excellent, but Kanye is a pathetic loser whose only talent is for shameless self promotion. Yawn City. Please stop making this man famous.

The security gate at the front of Latin American Enterprise (151 Allen Street) has been given The New Allen treatment with a colorful abstract mural by 2DX Crew.

They have an ATM but I do not think I would want to use it.

Part of The New Allen project, this cheerful Blue Gecko by street artist DJ Neff (#djn3ff) snakes playfully down the front of 134 Allen Street, just below Delancey.

If you check him out from the east side of the street, he appears to be emerging from the mouth of a scary-looking cat, while a resting Avocado looks on!

Patch Whisky Storefront Mural on Allen Street

The New Allen (#TheNewAllen) is an on-going public art project where different street artists are commissioned to paint murals on the walls and the storefront gates along Allen Street between Canal and Houston (where Allen turns into First Avenue). This one, done in the very distinctive style of South Carolina-based muralist Patch Whisky (real name Rich Miller) was spotted on the west side of Allen adjacent to number 129.  I think this piece is called the Candy Bandit, but I am not sure. Anyway, I love it.

Here’s another one of #TheNewAllen project murals, this one being located on the west side of Allen just above Delancey Street. This one is a collaboration between two street artists, Patch Whisky and Ghost Beard, who have worked together previously on murals in other US cities.
