When I lived in New York, circa 2002, I came across this image at the intersection of Lafayette and Prince street near Soho. With all the visual stimulation in the city, this image still managed to catch my attention. I wasn’t sure what to make of it at the time, since it wasn’t advertising anything. I snapped a photo. A few years later I discovered that it was a wheatpaste done by the artist WK Interact. This was possibly my first encounter with street art.
