The Freedom Tunnel - New York, NY : citynoise.org

I could go on and on describing this place, its contents and meaning, but I'll let the photos speak for themselves. More reading here, though: Freedom Tunnel Just inside the tunnel, looking north towards the entrance, early morning sunlight just starting to stream in. I carried a tripod in order to avoid using the tell-tale flash. This was a small area that led nowhere, as if an area made so trackworkers of yore would have a place to eat their lunches or avoid oncoming trains... As the day progressed and the sun rose, beams of light began to illuminate the tunnel, streaming in from the gratings in the sidewalks of Riverside Park (Manhattan) 71 BiG Walls – A Street Art Collection.

His multicolored and meticulously sculpted art pieces simply astound with lifelike affinity, so in whichever way it’s even possible to mistake them for being real! In his works he stacks many layers with all piece elements being connected either in their original form or in shapes to form wooden mosaic, dots, and pixels.

After that they’re cut down to size, shaven to get rid of the debris, and afterwards coated with a final glossy finish. Source Source Source Source Source Source.
