PoTD: The Street Artist
It’s been a while since I’ve done a PoTD thing on this site, or even posted a simple set of pictures. Well I’ve come to break that trend here today. I went out and surveyed one of the nicer sides of Queens today looking for something to shoot. I stumbled across this brilliant graffiti artist, whose name I forgot to grab, and got him to pose for two shots. I also screwed up by not having proper business cards on me. How professional and swanky can you really appear when you have to write down your url on a folder… with someone else’s pen! But I digress.
Oh and before you rant about how illegal what he’s doing is know that it isn’t. 5 Points, which is located in Astoria, is one of the few places in NYC where it’s perfectly legal to practice graffiti, granted you ask permission first. The place is full of incredible art ranging from comic book icons to music murals and everything in between.
