street art




Took me a little while
 surfing the internets 
to learn about this street art 
 photographed 
from a taxi 
stopped briefly 
at a traffic light 
when I took the shots
 I had no idea 
where 
I actually was
 I mean 
I knew
 I was in a cab
 duh 
where the cab was
that was the question
 its good
 I took several photos
 because
 that enabled me to track down the location

the corner of Prince and Mulberry Streets 
in 
Nolita
(NOrth of Little ITAy)


the clue 
I followed first 
was the sign

then
 under the other graphic 

eventually 
I stumbled 
onto
 a blog 
(click here
about street art

 fascinating

it surrounds us 

 either
 its taken for granted
 or 
its unnoticed
 because 
we're in a hurry 




how did I find what it was?
who created it? 

Googled
 prince mulberry polkadot street art

 honest

it got me

  3. amazing work - surely this isn't considered graffiti? I'm so glad you were being observant (even if you didn't know where you were:) noticed this and shared it with us. Wondering how long the wheat paste will hold it in place...will the rain gently wash it away?

  8. Daryl, interesting! You had me going. I had no idea what I was looking at until I saw the last shot. One of those that once you see it you see it in all the shots!

  12. Geez, I've got to tell you, I'm not sure I'd want some giant head screaming on my building. Seems like it would make the neighborhood a little tense.

  17. Superb detective work Daryl, it's really fun trying to track down info but incredibly frustrating when you hit a brick wall so to speak! What a fabulous link to the 'street art blog' was exciting to see a ROA,that guy gets around!
