Nick Walker Loves NY

I don’t want to say that New Yorkers are blasé, but you pretty much have to flip over backwards and walk like a spider while juggling watermelons and singing “God Save the Queen” in a clown suit before most people even turn their heads, let alone break their gait. Bristol based and globally known Street Artist Nick Walker spent hours on New York’s streets last week putting up some new stencils in his signature style and as usual, New Yorkers took it all in stride.

It’s frickin’ Nick Walker, people!  And he loves New York and the never ending parade of oddness and drop dead gorgeousness that you encounter just hanging on the sidewalk. With his loyal guard and court jester Stu on hand to hold down a stencil and to chat with the ladies and entertain the kids, Nick sprayed his way around Chelsea and the Lower East Side with some new characters, along with one familiar bowler-hatted fella.

And truthfully, there were many people stopping to chat and kids especially want to get the low-down on how all this stencil stuff takes place. They want details. Once again, expression of the creative spirit on the street provides a common ground for the exchange of ideas, opinions, and sideways glances.
