NYC-based Street Artist Denis Ouch has been busy lately painting images of Superheros in Face Masks all over the city. His most ambitious contribution to the series so far seems to be this monumental mural depicting masked-up versions of Superman, Batman, Thor (who technically is a God, not a Superhero), and Wonder Woman, accompanied by the urgent plea “Save Us Justice League” in white (and Ouch’s tag in pink).
The mural expands across two facades of the building at the corner of 8th Avenue and Greenwich Avenue (by the Mobil Station), in Chelsea.
NYC could use some saving, now more than ever I suspect.
I never heard of lifestyle/clothing brand Ugli Pygs in my life before I spotted this cute Pink Pig painted on the wall adjacent to this monumental work, and decided to Google the tag Ugli Pygs so I could find out who the artist is. As it turns out, Ugli Pygs is a brand, and this little guy is its mascot. An artist name was nowhere to be found, I’m afraid.
Located on an adjacent wall, I found another Ugli Pyg, clad in a pair of tighty-whities and sporting a cape, who appears to be a super hero of some kind. The conversation bubble close by, obscured by the gate, reads “Unity is Strength . . . Division is Weakness.” Words to live by in these troubling times.
