Kobra Street art

Have you ever walked by this mural in the City?

It is perfectly in line with the season. We should feel colorful like this all the time actually.
Go, go have a look and combine it with a nice walk on the high line as it is located on 25th Street and 12th Ave.

You want the story behind it, here you go:

This mural is called « VJ Day in Times Square », VJ meaning Victory over Japan 
 it is actually a reinterpretation of a photo taken by Alfred Eisenstaedt on Times Square on August 14th, 1945 when Japan surrendered...
VJ Day Kiss Alfred Eisenstaedt 480x360 Le Portfolio Bons Plans Voyage New York : la fresque murale de Kobra, VJ Day in Times Square

Not sure if we will see a horde of Japanese people taking photos here ;)

Anyway, the painter Eduardo Kobratries, who goes with his artist name Kobra, travels all over the world to paint such amazing murals, see his artwork here:

I like it, I think you'll like it too!
