Green graffiti

As someone who loves and appreciates street art I have to say it is rare these days when graffiti moves me. Maybe it is just living in a city like New York. We’re inundated daily with it on building sides and subway platforms. It’s become part of the city’s landscape.

With that said I could not be more thrilled to have uncovered Mosstika. Born Edina Tokodi in Hungary and currently residing in Brooklyn, she is a graffiti artist working with an unusual paint: greenery.

Her creations, found on building sides and subway cars, use living plants to create images striking in beauty. Forget spray paint. This art is thoughtful, non destructive, and truly original.
