Before and After - The Blue Wall in Chelsea

There is a certain blue wall outside of the Eyebeam Art and Technology Center in Chelsea that gets some special treatment when it comes to street art, and passers-by get treated to an eyeful. The mural featuring two children wearing bird helmets below were on the walls last summer. It was done by Herakut, a collaboration by two artists, Hera and Akut, from Germany. The text reads: “If this was graffiti, we were the chicken.” I don't exactly get what that means- hmmmmm, maybe something was lost in translation. You can see more of their fantastic collaborative art here.  

This summer, the new mural is by Jeff Soto. The blue figure's beard spills out in 3-D onto the sidewalk. The text from the previous piece is still there, as the layers build up. Check out more of Jeff's whimsical artwork here.
