This is the first overtly erotic Swoon print I’ve seen. Most of her prints are monumental, like portraits of deities, here the gods are making out.
I think Stikman is sweetly presenting a bouquet to them on the right.

I had my camera out and ready to take a shot of the latest on this Swoon mural, when this official city car pulled up and the guy inside started looking closely at the mural. I suspect he may be looking to fine the building for the graffiti.

After that whole splasher thing (see the video below), this mural remained unmolested for a full year, until this fool wrote his name.

This was created for this past Summer’s Soho Art Parade. I was there but didn’t see it. I was happy to spot it on Houston Street this morning. Swoon, of course, did the pasted paper in the foreground, Ellis the swirly background.
David Ellis bio
Looks like the NYC skyline on the left, the figure has a rolled up newspaper in its left hand and a cooking pot in its right, and on the right armed and masked soldiers are sneaking up. And that does look like a paint can worn like a helmet or some sort of military hat, a drum major, maybe. Barbed wire surrounds it like a crown of thorns. Flickrite Trois TÃªtes suggests that this may be a reference to her work getting splashed.
The left side of the truck. This sad mermaid makes me think of Coney Island as Atlantis.
The right side of the truck. A calm contemplative figure above what looks like a South American slum. Moths are in flight.
