BRUSSELS STREET ART: BANKSY MANNEKEN FRITES!

Such a cool idea ~ an unknown street artist merged iconic cultural symbols to make a cool piece of art. They used the image of Banksy’s rebel throwing flowers, Brussels’ number one representative image of its city – Manneken Pis – and frites, one of the main dishes Brussels is known for. Brilliant. In addition, I brought some friends along – NYC’s Primate by artist Joseph Meloy, The Tribal Mask by Bogota-based Aussie artist CRiSP, and WOPS! Festival promos for The Walk on The Pink Side Festival happening in Toulouse, France in October (16-18,) hosted by my favorite artist, French phenom FAFI.

NYC-based artist Joseph Meloy’s Primate has taken a well-deserved vacation. He’s having fun in the sun in Orlando, Florida today.

“Nevertheless, it is even harder for the average ape to believe that he has descended from man.”— H.L. Mencken

NYC GRAFFITI: LINGERING IN THE LOWER EAST SIDE

Spent a long time walking around the Lower East Side yesterday and finally, after all of my pit stops at the Jay Meisel building, I think I finally saw Jay Meisel coming out of his building! You’ll see who I’m talking about when you scroll down:

NYC GRAFFITI: PRIMATE ORIGINS by JOSEPH MELOY

In the East Village the other day, I came upon my favorite buddy in the streets: Joseph Meloy’s ‘Primate!’ The first two you’ll see are definitely some of the earlier renderings of it before he evolved into the handsome ape he is today:
