New York Street Art

A rich cornucopia of art and hi jinx on the Bowery, the last stand some might say.

I've got to think about these a little. Hmmmm.
I am not a fan of grafitti as a rule, but in isolation, some are pretty interesting. How's that for straddling the fence?

Do all the great grafitti artists end up in New York? All you see in Los Angeles are tags on freeway overpasses. These images are amazing. And while I'm not a proponant of defacing property -- I can't imagine the Big Apple without all of this colorful, imaginative street art.

Great shots!

They are very artistic and interesting.

A bit more talent at your end than down here, I'd say...

KM,

Graffiti yes. Art most definitely. Too much snobbery in the artworld. Frame these, stick them indoors they become sort after pieces of art. Outside they are treated as unwanted worthles defacements. Give me a world
that has these artists in it any day, not a sterile grey blank one.

I love Frankie and the feral child. Really, your graffiti is art! Ours are just vandals, spray-painting their fraternity letters on walls. Wild animals, I tell you. These are cool!

Nice pics - great choices. I see these as works of art suitable for public display. I think they raise the bar for graffiti artists everywhere.
