Doze Green lays out his line from a squeeze bottle. Via Boing Boing
I’m happy to finally have a name for the squeeze bottle artist who did all those beautiful sidewalk faces in 2003. The photos below are all from the East Village, and taken with my crappy old camera. I’m searching my archives for more photos.
I’m not certain of this attribution. I’m only going by the similarity of style of the face in the video, with these familiar sidewalk faces. Searching through the Flickr dozegreen tag, the only sidewalk photos I see are mine. And I haven’t found any sidewalk photos on the doze green site. (Annoying Flash navigation on this site, see if you can find any.)
Update, 6/20: I’m even less sure of who did these. They could just as easily be Michael De Feo, who is known for his squeeze bottle flowers.
I wish they hadn’t put the construction shed post on top of it. This is my favorite. I love the grace of line.
This one is sweet as well. The shot is from April 2005, but the piece is probably from 2003.
These stone sidewalk carvings were done about twenty years ago by an Asian artist. You can find them in the East Village and Soho. Does anyone know the name of the artist, or remember anything about this project? Update: Flickrite krispy suggests that the artist is Ken Hiratsuka. I think he’s right. View Large
