Gallery Mondays: URBANIMAL Graffiti on AI Moving Express Truck

I saw another one of URBANIMAL’s creations on a truck near my job one evening a couple of months ago. I love seeing these unexpectedly pop up on trucks in NYC.

This truck happened to be an AI Moving Express truck, and the art on it was both subtle and vibrant at the same time. It features a man in grayscale in a sort of portrait style surrounded by fish on either side of him along with a few UFOs overhead.

Looking at these little fishies in the graffiti reminded me that their waters are going to turn to ice soon, as winter is approaching :/

Gallery Mondays: URBANIMAL’s Pet Dragon

I’ve had this pic sitting in my phone for a few month’s now. I felt it was time to unleash the dragon in this graffiti by URBANIMAL.

I saw this piece on a truck on the corner of West 37th and 8th Ave, and I immediately knew it was by URBANIMAL because of the way the eyes on the characters are depicted and the fact that his art is all over trucks in Midtown West. I love the vibrant color.

For some reason, the woman in the piece looks a little bit like Gayle from Bob’s Burgers. Is it just me? Also, is she holding that dragon by pink bejeweled reins?!

Gallery Mondays: URBANIMAL Graffiti on B.K. Express Truck

A few months ago I spotted this B.K. Express Truck sitting in the parked lane on 8th Avenue in Midtown with URBANIMAL graffiti all over it.

The truck has a Michigan address on it, which is enough to pique my curiosity. The URBANIMAL graffiti was just an added bonus.

The first thing I noticed were the fish and how much the ones along the bottom of the truck look like Frankie and Evelyn from Spongebob. That can’t be a coincidence.

The second thing I noticed was the uncanny amount of eyeballs in the piece as a whole. Wow.

URBANIMAL’s graffiti never ceases to amaze me.

Gallery Mondays: URBANIMAL Graffiti on K&M Camera’s Van

About two weeks ago, I saw this van parked on West 38th street in Midtown when I got out of work. First I saw the scary face on the back doors and then I saw the cute yellow bird on the left side of the van.

The van belongs to K&M Camera on Broadway. Below the company name is a signature that reads “URBANIMAL,” which is the name of a Danish-Italian graffiti artist that does trucks, vans, and canvas art.

I definitely like the left side of the van way better than the creepy eyed character on the back doors. I can’t tell if the bird’s yellow feathers are the objects surrounding the eyes and mouth on the back of the van, but I do like the dark water droplets around the bird.
