Gritty, NYC

Kevin Cyr, 2007ish

"The van I'm known for, the rough, graffiti covered vans, are really only found in New York...Painting these vehicles is my way of documenting the grit and character that is slowly disappearing..."

Kevin Cyr, Juxtapoz, jun2012, n137, p63

..makes me think about what happened with the double-edged miracle of the High Line, and just gentrification in general in nyc, and the role of art in that process, and especially conventional/fine art vs. street art.
