Tristan Eaton participated in the Little Italy Street Art (LISA) Project to create this colorful rendition of Audrey Hepburn back in 2013. It’s doing extraordinarily well for a mural that’s nearing 10 years of age. You can find the Breakfast at Tiffany’s star at the corner of Mulberry and Broome Street
This iconic New York City mural leaves so much room to your imagination. To see a polished man in a suit spray painting something silly on a wall, it’s comical. It created this idea in my head that at the end of the day, no matter who you are or where you come from-we can all come together and agree New York City is something else.
The World Trade Center has had a long road in rebuilding after the attacks on September the 11th.

The genius that Kobra is, used the memorable photo of Einstein sticking out his tongue and gave him a rebellious side. Heck, if a Nobel Prize-winning physicist loves this city enough to vandalize it, it oughta be a good city
The next time you find yourself perusing the East Village, make sure you check out “Black or White”. Today, you’ll find flocks of visitors and fans taking pictures of the mural and with the mural, as the vibrant colors take up a 5 story building. The size and composure speaks to Kobra’s style and he nailed it.
Few characters loom as large in Hip Hop’s pantheon as Christopher Wallace, AKA the Notorious B.I.G. It’s only fitting that NYC’s most notable hip hop artist would also have one of the most epic murals in New York City.
Close to the High Line you will find “Tolerance,” a riveting depiction of two of history’s symbols of peace and love. In this city people of different ethnicity, colors, and religions come together and begin to show that we’re really not that different from one another.
