Central Park Pictograms

Last May and June, in the pedestrian lane on the East Drive of Central Park I discovered a series of chalk pictograms. Evidently drawn by a guy named James De La Vega, they would disappear and

reappear, day-in and day-out. Convinced I’d discovered a new, rare phenomenon I began documenting them. It turns out James De La Vega’s been refining both his graffiti and his bigger-than-life persona for years. In any event, the chalk speaks for itself, and I still look for his work in the park. Thanks De La Vega!
