A Quirky Street Artist Is on the loose In New York, Making Street “Furniture” The Talk of The Town


Tom Bob, an American artist, is running around the streets of New York painting the town – literally.

Using items found in the center of the Big Apple such as electrical terminals and poles, Tom creates colorful and fanciful pieces that integrate the city’s street “furniture” with the surrounding landscape. From turning a hole in the wall to a bird cage to creating an elephant from a piece of PVC pipe.

Let’s hope this whimsical artist continues to roam the city streets for a while, making the dull buildings into a masterpiece intended to brighten everyone’s mood.
