I was walking around the NYC neighborhood of Little Italy yesterday and saw these two striking pieces. This is reminicent of the famous silhouette of Audrey Hepburn from the movie, “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”. I greatly admire her for her humanitarian efforts and the way she used her fame to promote her causes.
The way the patterns and colors explode off the wall while still being able to recall the iconic image is a great technique and very inspirational.
Around the corner is this tribute to Irish and Italian immigrants. In a stark contrast to all the color of the previous piece, this is mostly in shades of gray. I like the way it ties in with the ethnicity of the neighborhood and the rough and tumble image of a boy fighting his way to a better life in our country.
