Stencil Art Pioneer Blek Le Rat at the Quin and on NYC Streets

"Blek Le Rat"

New works by the legendary French stencil artist Blek Le Rat – whose rats first surfaced on the streets of Paris in 1981 – can now be seen at the Quin on West 57th Street and on the streets of our city.

Here are two more works from the exhibit Escaping Paris, curated by DK Johnston, at the Quin:

The Violinist

And the artist — captured — signing a spray can at a reception held earlier this month at the Quin

We, also, discovered the following two new pieces on the streets of Manhattan:

In Little Italy for the LISA Project

"Blek Le Rat"

And the artist’s iconic portrait of Andy Warhol on West 57th Street

The first image is a close-up from The Tango Dancers.
