A break from typography today <gasp!> to take a moment and gaze at these beauties. Not sure who the artist is in the picture taken in NYC. The mural is about 5 stories tall. I just love the mixture of patterns and the colors. The picture taken in Pittsburgh is the work of Shepard Fairey. I saw a lot of his work in Pittsburgh, all strategically placed. This was taken on the side of a building that was actually an alley between 2 buildings. It was in a weird location, you wouldn’t see it unless you took a wrong turn walking. I’ve always loved Fairey’s work and this is no exception. I thought the pattern complimented the picture taken in NYC freakishly well.
