A street-art named desire

I love street art. Some people call it graffiti. Some people call it vandalism. It all depends on perspective I suppose. I put it down to how pleasurable it is to look at, how colorful, how artistic…In general, I call it self expression. It brightens up our streets. It adds character. It subverts our expectations. New York City, among many other cities, is full of it…all you need to do is bring your camera on a meander along the back streets of the Lower East Side or NoLiTa and you will not be disappointed. I have always wondered, when do people sneakily, stealthily create these public masterpieces?

Note the hand of God creating Adam on The Bowery…
