kristi sword

one of the nicest things about living in new york is the way public art intregrates so seemlessly into your life. i love finding little pictures, tiles, and drawings people have placed on city streets and signs. some see it as vandalism but i really enjoy the projects that are fleeting (and leave minimal ecological impact) and draw attention to something seemingly mundane like cracks in the pavement or an old drainpipe. artist kristi sword has done both with her 'interventions' series that decorates tiny patches of city life with stickers and embellishments like ice cream sprinkles. you can click here for more on kristi's work and a full slideshow of installations [via craftzine]

Check out the artwork of my friend at juliaschwadron.com to see similar city art. Under the other projects heading check out her collaborative drawings.

Hmm, where is she from? Because the 3rd image looks like Vancouver, Canada.
& the 'never forget' dinosaur's are by a local fellow. They're everywhere here.
