Artistic surprises in Manhattan

10.04.2014 | Around the Globe

Last January in New York was so cold you certainly didn’t want to go out with a spray can! Dynamic, creative, vibrant, and sometimes subversive, this metropolis boasts an eclectic art scene that begins in the street. With anarchic graffiti and stunning murals, it’s difficult to take even a single step in the Big Apple without stumbling upon a piece of street art. Now everyone can visit with a new mobile app called Street Art NYC*, which displays the locations of all the latest must-see street art in the 4th and 5th boroughs. But too cold to reach for my iPhone, I discovered these works simply by chance:

- Powerful, creative, funny, and inspiring messages

- Explosions of color in blocks of solid shades

- New takes on well-known images such as Andy Warhol’s legendary “Marilyn Monroe”, revisited with humor, and Man Ray-esque solarization effects used to give a twist to a giant version of an M.I.A. album cover, plastered over the walls of SoHo.
