Street Art in NYC
On an ordinary walk in Chelsea, I bumped into a pair of street artists finishing up the day’s work on 22nd Street. @soulthundre and @consumerart have been here before – there are several of their pieces displayed, including a self-portrait.
(@ConsumerArt) “In time pieces get ripped, work gets covered up and gets covered over organically so it’s always tough to find a new space to put new work here, but it is an iconic wall to hit. So, I just got one of my pieces up and my friend did too and also our collab.”
(@SoulThundre) “His is more street art and my pieces are more like if I could paint, that’s what they’d be, so I use a lot of old romanticism and surrealist paintings and stuff to create the pieces.
I modified one with the face masks after Covid. It was about people being really close but far apart, like in relationships – are you being held up, or held back by your partner, and now it means something different because now we can only help each other literally by being apart.”
