New Yorkers have been facing an endless and rigorous winter and its accompanying bone-chilling temperatures may be forgiven for finding a bright spot wherever possible—even on the traffic-clogged corner of Bowery and Houston Streets.
These days New York needed color and enthusiasm. And here’s the moment Maya Hayuk enters this post.
The Brooklyn-based artist Maya Hayuk has created a mixing color-saturated mural using her signature cross-hatch geometric strokes. The latest in a stellar lineup of artists commissioned to make their mark on the wall that serves as revolving public gallery space, Hayuk gamely braved the arctic chill to give New Yorkers a much-needed dose of visual energy—and a welcome antidote to the winter blues. Color always makes an iron city warmer and much kinder.
