I have held on to this one for a very long time, because although I suspected it, I was never one hundred per cent sure that it was by JPS. Well it is…although I had to check back on his Instagram account to be absolutely certain.
The featured image is the earliest photograph, taken in August 2014, and the cleanest version that I have. The Charlie Brown character has been defaced a couple of times since, and I am fairly sure that the last time I saw it, it was pretty much ruined.
It is one of my top ten stencils and was really the first introduction I had to photographing street art. I think I love everything JPS does, and I have so much more to share.
I seem to have in my mind that I read an article about this piece and that it made reference to Banksy’s successful New York tour, hence the ‘I love NY’ tag. I wish I could recall the article, because I doubt the sharpness of my mind.
