Each morning when visiting NYC, I took a stroll for about an hour before the rest of the family got up, and went on the hunt to find some graffiti/street art. I didn’t think for one minute I would find so much. This piece was one of several in a little alleyway off East First Street.
This piece is by an old school New York graffiti artist called Stem. It is just possible to make out his name from the wildstyle writing. This is a really lovely piece that oozes a New York style one is so accustomed to seeing in books, documentaries etc.
There was a nice man who chatted with me about this piece and some of the others in this little lane. He seemed to know a lot about them. He also suggested I visit the ‘wall of fame’ in Harlem, which I did with limited success.
