Happy birthday to street artist Russell King, who celebrates his special day on March 7. Not much is known about the reclusive street artist as he lets his art do most of the talking. On the streets, you’ll see his art poking fun at the pill popping generation who will stop at nothing to keep up appearances. I’ve seen many pieces from Russell King throughout the streets of Manhattan and in addition to stickers and wheat-pastes, often he drills holes and posts his works on street signs! That can’t be an easy task when you are in a hurry. Respect! Have a great day Russell and I am putting it out there that one day I get the opportunity to meet him so I can find out more about the man behind the great images.
