What is Unseen NYC?
Unseen NYC isn’t about a wall in Astoria covered by an desperate mass of random, shitty tags.
It’s also not about Banksy’s publicity stunts, but that’s a little closer to what we’re going after.
UnseenNYC is about what catches your eye. On the subway, on the street, just off the NYU campus, around Central Park or a collection of people trying to make sense of Times Square on their first visit to the city.
It’s a visual embodiment of that unspoken language New Yorkers seem to know inherently. The way a community is formed on each subway car, on each train throughout the city. These images are the unseen aspects of beauty in this city – the freckles beneath your shirt.
It’s art where the canvas might be illegal, but the message is still just as important.
