During a particularly successful Street Art Safari over on 10th Avenue in the Chelsea Gallery District, I spotted this wheat paste of an Insulin Vial with a Shark on it near 22nd Street. This piece is part of a series by a diabetic artist/photographer known as Appleton who aims to increase Diabetes Awareness through his art.

Peek a Boo, someone sees you, as a single eye spies from the north facade of an apartment building at the southwest corner of the Bowery and Great Jones Street in the village. The artist is JR.

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!

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.

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!
