Bowery Space Peace Aviator


This was on the other side of the same building as my previous post.

What is your take on this weird graffiti? WW 2 aviator piercing the peace bloom? Kamikaze warrior hoping for sunshine? Post apocalyptic gas mask survivor? Honestly I thought it was some corporate logo til I learned of the artist's urban cred....

Could be the nest Keith Haring. I never really got his work either.

Well, "Toxicity Inspector" is really very cool! Great work.

From the two above links, I've learned much more about posters than I expected.

And the "Obey Giants" site is I think where my photo of last February comes from.

What a world.

Piercing the peace bloom to see if it still smells as it should!!
I like these series of restaurants/buildings/graffiti!!

I now have no idea what I originally thought when I saw this because i've just spent a while looking through the links anonymous provided.

Great shot!

Someone who doesn't like the smell of roses very much, trying to extract the scent so it doesn't gas him ;-)

About graffiti, do you know the site Wooster Collective? It's amazing, worth a visit!

This is when I know I am getting old. I look at this KM and I just don't have a clue!! I want to say something sage or witty but the words just won't come so I will just change the subject. ( Now I'm sounding like Sarah Palin, heaven forbid!)

YOu guys behave yourself with Eric the Great tonight. And we want pictures, lots of pictures. OK???
