Crosswalk robot graffiti
If you tend to cross streets without staring at your phone the entire time, you may have noticed that some crosswalks also feature a little graffiti robot. These are actually street-art works by a NYC-based artist known as Stikman. According to his site, Stikman’s work represents “the absence of personality in art,” as well as the “disconnect that most viewers of street art feel with the perpetrators of the artwork.” He’s pretty prolific too, with robots spotted in Boston, Philadelphia, Washington DC, Pittsburgh, and Indianapolis, among other locales. One more fun tidbit: “Usually where you find a Stikman you will find some other object or image nearby that I have attached to something.” So, next time you spot one, be on the lookout for a nearby piece.
