Today Ray Mock, photographer, writer and publisher of the Carnage graffiti zine, shares an image he shot in 2013 of Kuma, whose piece is stylized to reflect the movement of the water it is near.

Kuma is one of Mock’s favorite subjects to shoot as he travels continuously through New York catching shots of graffiti that he loves.
“I am obviously a little biased,” he says, “but to me this piece in particular represents the best of what graffiti can be. It’s inventive and original, yet respectful of graffiti tradition, contextually relevant, cleanly executed, and done entirely without permission.”
Location: New York. 2013
