Met this new neighbor on my night walk about. I’ve seen signs of this one coming, in little scrawled positive reinforcement messages like a simply written, “I think you’re great.” If you’re gonna have a graffiti artist prowling the hood, so much better this than the unartistic “back phat” who uglified the nabe several years ago. This is more along the lines of one of my faves, de la Vega, who had a museum/store in the East Village up till recently and pumped a lot of positive energy into the city with his ubiquitous and iconic message, “become your dream.”
post script: try to ignore the little hater message defacing the property. I did.
