travel tuesday – union square street artist Joe Mangrum

31 Jul

one time, when i lived in new york – a very nice colleague and friend of mine let me borrow his brand new canon camera and take it out on the town.  i went shopping with some friends and then later cruised through union square to see the haps.  never a dull moment on any given street in manhattan, but i loved going to USQ because there was the farmers market, the shops, the arts, the people, and the chess-players. and, lots of awesome randomness to stumble upon.

this day was when i met Joe Mangrum, an NYC legend in street art.  Joe is most known for his beautiful, unique and colourful sand art.  most commonly done in USQ, Joe gets out into the streets and does his thing – small or large crowd, rain or shine alike.  he is one friendly dude, too!

here are a few shots i snapped while watching him work :

this little girl was cute – she just ran and ran around his design…

“wow, you’re STILL going?!”

SUPPORT THE ARTS!!!!!
