Big Wampum Poster, on Houston Street

Big Poster
Photo by myself on Houston Street and Bowery, in NoHo.

This gigantic mural caught my eye, Monday morning.

'Lakota, Dakota Nation' refers to two Native American reservations in North Dakota. The installation was done after the artist, 'JR', received a $100,000 grant awarded by TED, a non-profit agency dedicated to innovation.

'JR' is a street artist. He specializes in large scale portraits placed in urban settings. For his online portfolio, click here.

That one pedestrian makes a beautiful complication in an already complicated, gripping photo! Really nice.

I'm hearing more and more about TED--will have to check it out more than I have. I have a new interest in street artists after the documentary Exit through the Gift Shop about a year ago.
