Photographer's Note

Here is another colorful work of art that I found during a walk on the Lower East Side last month. I like that the girl is wearing glasses; glasses are cool. :-)

This mural is located in First Street Green, an abandoned lot that was turned into an open art space in 2008. There is always a series of changing murals on display, and and other art pieces to enjoy. I've visited this spot with Lars, Rob, and Paul during their past visits to NYC.

This particular mural is the work of an artist who calls herself “riiisa Boogie”, (real name Risa Tochigi). She’s originally from Japan, but moved to the US as a child. She also has prominent and colorful work next to the World Trade Center.

For a small space, there is a lot of great art to enjoy. In the WS are two more examples.
