10 Wishes for 2010, #5, Specter

For ten days we’re presenting ten artists and their wishes for the new year, 2010, in no particular order.  Together, they are a tiny snapshot of the people who are part of the giant explosion of street art in New York.  Individually, each has added their expression of the creative spirit to the decade now ending.

Today’s wish comes from Specter, whose large scale hand drawn and painted wheat-pastes have championed the homeless, the worker, the marginalized in unconventional unusual locations all over. What one may not guess is the sense of humor behind them. Here’s Specter’s wish for the new year;

“If had only one wish for the new year I would have to say I would want to be this guy if only for a few days — a chick magnet!”
