Sticker Street; A New York City Halloween

5 Pointz

NYC streets are always dressed up for halloween. Tons of scary, freaky, and creepy images around every corner, and then there's the street art. You can find everything from gushing head wounds to men dressed as donkeys. Happy halloween!

Why is the ghost town built so far away?
"Because they're stupid. That's why everybody does anything!"

Bortusk Leer monster.

Your memory is a monster, you forget-it doesn't. It simply files things away. It keeps things from you, or hides things from you-and summons them to your recall with a will of it's own. You think you have a memory, but it has you!
John Irving

The artist must bow to the monster of his imagination.
Richard Wright

Okay Donkey, say hi to your mother for me.
Marky Mark

I can't bear the silent ringing in my skull.

Man as an individual is a genius. But men in the mass for the headless monster, a great, brutish idiot that goes where prodded.
Charlie Chaplin

Whoever fights monsters should see to it that in the process he does not become a monster. And if you gaze long enough into an abyss, the abyss will gaze back into you.
Friedrich Nietzsche

You can major in Game Boy if you know how to bullshit.

A mushroom walks into a bar, the Bartender says "We don't serve mushrooms". Mushroom says "Really?" The bartender pulls out a baseball bat from behind the bar and yells "I said get out! Get out! Get out! Get Out!" The mushroom says "Ok geez", and leaves. A customer turns to the bartender and says "Don't you think you overreacted?" Bartender goes "You know I freak out on mushrooms". 

Luigi: Aliens? We gotta deal with Aliens too?

Ed: All right Savage! What do you want?
Hector Savage: I want a car out front! Something fun. A Porsche! Then I want a plane ticket to Jamaica. And a nice hotel. No touristy place. Something really indicative of the people and their culture.
Ed: Can't do that Savage! We're calling your bluff. Now put your hands on top of your head and come out!

The tongue is like a sharp knife...kills without drawing blood.

Gregos: A Paris Masquerade

No mask like open truth to cover lies,
And to go naked is the best disguise.
William Congreve

I grasped a lovely masked procession,
And caught things from a horror show...
I'd gladly settle for a false impression,
If it would last a little longer, though.
Johann Wofgang von Goethe

Love takes off masks that we fear we cannot live without
And know we cannot live within.
James Baldwin

Jewish Proverb

A mask tells us more than a face.
Oscar Wilde

I have all the characteristics of a human being: blood, flesh, skin, hair, but not a single, clear, identifiable emotion except for greed and disgust. Something horrible is happening inside of me and I don't know why. My nightly bloodlust has overflown into my days. I feel lethal, on the verge of frenzy. I think my mask of sanity is about to slip.
Patrick Bateman-American Psycho

Virtue has a veil, vice a mask.
Victor Hugo

Sometimes I put on a ski mask and dress in old clothes, go out on the street and beg for quarters.

He is...The Most Interesting Man In The World

Do you not know that there comes a midnight hour where every one has to throw off his mask. Do you believe that life will always let itself be mocked? Do you think you can slip away a little before midnight in order to avoid this? Or are you not terrified by it? I have seen men in real life who so long deceived others that at last their true nature could not reveal itself...In every man there is something which to a certain degree prevents him from becoming perfectly transparant to himself, and this may be the case in so high a degree, he may be so inexplicably woven into relationships of life which extend far beyond himself that he almost cannot reveal himself. But he who cannot reveal himself cannot love, and he who cannot love is the most unhappy man of all.
Soren Kierkegaard

There are hundreds more of these painted faces all over Paris, mostly painted by Gregos, some done in collaboration. The blank face above flew in from Paris, and is ready to be painted- Brooklyn style...although you gotta admit the details in the original face are pretty awesome.

Want to collaborate with Gregos?
