New York City has a rich history of graffiti and street art that has become an integral part of its cultural landscape. From the subway trains of the 1970s and 80s to the modern murals and installations that adorn its buildings and public spaces, graffiti and street art have been an expression of the city's vibrant energy and diversity. In the world of pop art, New York City has also played a central role. The city was the birthplace of the pop art movement in the 1950s and 60s, with artists such as Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, and Claes Oldenburg creating works that celebrated and critiqued the consumer culture of the era. The intersection of graffiti and pop art has produced some iconic works in New York City. One example is Keith Haring's mural "Crack is Wack," which he painted on a handball court in Harlem in 1986 to raise awareness about the crack cocaine epidemic that was devastating the city's communities. Haring's bold, colorful figures and energetic lines are characteristic of both pop art and graffiti, and the mural has become an iconic symbol of New York City's street art scene. Another artist who has made a name for himself in both the graffiti and pop art worlds is Shepard Fairey, creator of the "Obey Giant" street art campaign. Fairey's work combines pop culture imagery with political and social commentary, often featuring his signature "Andre the Giant" graphic. His murals can be seen throughout the city, and he has collaborated with many other artists and organizations to promote social justice and activism. New York City's street art scene is constantly evolving, with new artists and styles emerging all the time. Whether it's the bright, bold colors of pop art or the gritty, raw energy of graffiti, the city's streets are a canvas for creative expression that reflects the diversity and vitality of its people.

Each piece is unique and colors, painting, spray paintings made by hand by the artist are random, vary, and you may not receive the exact pictured item! "I use photographic images as the basis for the art, but I would sometimes draw directly on the acetate before I burn the screens to bring out parts of the images I felt were important. Each piece for this run was individually screen printed and hand-painted using a variety of acrylic and other mediums. Take notice of the colors rather than the image, even though that might be difficult to do sometimes. The colors represent what's going on in my life at any given moment." - Bobby Hill

Purchase The North Road Original Gouache Painting by Chris Austin One of a Kind Artwork on Wood by Street Art Pop Artist. 2023 Signed Gouache Painting Original Artwork Size 10x10 Chris Austin's extraordinary "The North Road" original gouache wood painting, is an exemplar of how contemporary art can challenge and redefine our conventional understanding of space and form. This piece of art, which seamlessly fuses elements of pop, street and graffiti art, is instantly captivating and thought-provoking. It uniquely presents a surreal scenario where a shark is depicted flying through taxi cabs amid city traffic. Austin's bold and idiosyncratic style confronts the viewers with the reality of urban chaos and the power of imagination. The artist's use of gouache, a type of watercolor paint that can produce intensely vibrant colors, allows for a rich depiction of the otherwise everyday urban landscape and the completely out-of-place ocean predator. The brightness of the taxis and the shark, contrasted with the muted, almost monochromatic background of the cityscape, gives the composition an intense visual impact, typical of pop and street art. In the realms of street and graffiti art, such pieces not only provide aesthetic pleasure but are also often imbued with social and political commentary. Austin's painting could be seen as a critique of urban congestion and pollution, using the incongruous image of the shark to draw attention to the unnaturalness of city life. Alternatively, the flying shark might symbolize the survival instincts and adaptability needed to thrive in a bustling city. "The North Road" stands as a testament to the limitless creativity and capacity for social commentary inherent in the genres of pop, street, and graffiti art. It continues to captivate audiences with its vibrant colors, surreal subject matter, and the compelling dialogue it prompts about our relationship with urban spaces.
