Street-Art Speaks Freud
by Taliesin Thomas, 1st year IDSVA student
I work on 25th Street in the thriving Chelsea arts district on Manhattan’s west side. Within the ten square block radius of this neighborhood, there are more than two hundred commercial art galleries, all nestled under and around the High Line, a walkway that offers some of the best views of modern-cum-contemporary architecture in New York City (visit onlinehttp://art.thehighline.org). Over the last few years, artists have become bolder about contributing renegade street-art to the area including graffiti, wild-posts, and image-tags. Last week I came across a “collaborative” work that whispered of Freudian theory.
