Yesterday, Park officials and various other people unveiled a new sculpture in Tompkins Square Park... Meet "Walk Man," which is the work of artist Scott Taylor.
Per DNAinfo, the "seven-foot-tall sculpture represent[s] the walking man, a version of which is seen at street crossings around the world."
As he said to DNAinfo: "Will it get graffitied? Probably," Taylor acknowledged, saying he’d simply paint over any scrawls that appear. "My graffiti is my white paint."
And "Walk Man" is set to be up for the next four months.
Did the rats chew off his hands and feet?
He NEEDS graffiti, and a rat in... on his stump, like a clutch!
I think it might just get mosiac'd!
Where do you put the cassette in?
It is sad that the artist sees graffiti as something to pain over.
Putting an object like this in a public park is begging for people to write on it. It would be great if the artist viewed that as a collaboration not an attack.
It’s a Tea Bagger, walking away as fast as he can from our darkie president. Cracker!
I agree Anon but not to worry. It's probably covered in rats by now.
I'd have rather seen a sculpture of the word "WALK".
bland, banal art foisted upon the public.
