NYC Lower East Side - street art as advertisement
Submitted by Turi McKinley
Since I've moved to this neighborhood I've been noticing the street art more often. These visually strong and massive works dominate a section of Ludlow just above Delancey.
These again stand on the edge of advertising. Around the corner, in a small gallery the artists work is sold - on t-shirts, hoodies, giant posters, and commissions can be requested. It is graphically strong work - and the artist does deserve recognition - but I found I looked at the work with a cooler eye after finding the gallery.
