Lokata, New York

The Houston/Bowery wall in SoHo gets some love by the famed artist ‘JR‘ as part of his world-wide ‘Inside/Outside’ project. This piece is called ‘Lokata, North Dakota’ and features a Native American. In case you are unfamiliar with JR, his TED talk after receiving a TED prize is worth a view.

    Ohh, quite unique. The yellow cab stands out with the desaturated background.

  • sherri on 16.07.2011 @ 10:43

    whoa, the background gives this a wonderful appeal.

    Wow, what a great capture! The picture of the face on the billboard was one of those images that took me a few seconds to realize what it was. For some reason at first I was seeing the shadow of arms converging over the cab, then 'wham' it struck me that it was a face!
