Mural by Kobra

This mural can be seen at the corner of 25th Street and 10th Avenue in New York  City. I photographed it while standing on the High Line
I really like this one, it's so bright and colorful. The Brazilian artist, Eduardo Kobra, painted a mural rendition of Alfred Eisenstaedt's picture of a sailor kissing a surprised woman while celebrating the end of WWII in Times Square.

  11. Wow, what a creative take on an iconic photo. This couple is radiating joy. Are those his spray paint cans at the base of the mural? Walking the High Line must be quite an experience, especially since murals seem to be popping up along the way. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.
