LIVING IN COLOR: LOWER EAST SIDE ART



Some weekends, I plan out the exact murals I want to see. This weekend, though, I wanted to do some old fashioned wandering the streets to see what I could find. I knew that there were 3 Bradley Theodore murals in the area, and figured I would run into plenty more art on my way. After cruising the streets of the Lower East Side, NoLiTa, and SoHo, this is what I found. My adventures never end! 






Bradley Theodore has been a favorite of mine ever since I saw his first mural on Mott St. (featured in two of my other posts here and here!) The first I found walking around I almost missed--it's inside a cozy cafe called Marm. I enjoyed the mural while drinking fresh watermelon juice in the cafe, and then went about this perfect summer day to look for more.
The next mural by BTH is at Hotel Chantelle, which is not actually a hotel but a bar with a gorgeous rooftop. Sweet! Here I'm posing with Nick Wooster, who's been dubbed the "alpha male of  American street style" by GQ. He's appropriately covered in tattoos in real life, and between the real him and this amazing skull version, I've decided he is most definitely this week's MCM. 

Just a few blocks away, another amazing piece of art. Bradley's rendition of Terry Richardson, iconic fashion photographer. I thought it was only right Terry snapped a couple of pictures of me. Seriously, I'm having so much fun at this point. 

And the fun continues.....

And then I heard a rumor...that miniskirts are back. Hmmm, I beg to differ.
You know what? WHATEVER. All I hear is blah blah blah. 
Okay seriously though, I wish this could be the background for a lot of events in my life. This is great!!! New fave. Artist; unknown.

All in all, a colorful and enjoyable day in the Lower East Side. There's still more to see, so stay tuned for more from my most favorite neighborhood next to the Upper West Side. Loveeee!!!
