NYC GRAFFITI: MITCHELL SCHORR’S “DA RACE”

If you’ve spent some time in New York in the past few months, you have probably seen Mitchell Schorr‘s work, and you might not have even realized it. For the past year Schorr has been creating a massive race around New York’s urban streets with his series of car-themed street art works on buildings. The ever-changing pace of the city gains a tangible form in cars that speed up, lag behind and catch up again. In only 13 months Schorr has turned an incredible number of commercial roll-down storeground gates and construction fences into whimsical and immersive events with a create-your-own narrative type effect. Depending on your route, different cars pull ahead and fall behind, creating a continuous visual adventure that refuses to slow down.
