A few years ago, I attended Art Basel Miami and spotted something curious in the street—collages made of NYC subway Wet Paint signs. A few months ago, I spotted similar collages at an art show in NYC. Today, I finally figured out these collages are the work of a man named Al Diaz.
It’s worth noting that Diaz is one of the artists behind the famous SAMO© tags that appeared in New York in the late 70s, commonly associated with his collaborator Jean-Michel Basquiat.
Check out some of Diaz’s awesome work below.

An unauthorized art show took place on the Kosciuszko Street J train platform this past Friday. The exhibition was organized by a group called Apostrophe, who previously ran an art space in Brooklyn. Check out Bushwick Daily for more photos and the full story!
Nina’s amazing collages are made entirely on MTA MetroCards, transformed into NYC’s most iconic images.

Manhattan watercolorist Joan Iaconetti’s first solo exhibit at The New School imagines the mundane, post-graffiti subway as a dark, deliciously sinister world full of vertiginous angles, dripping platforms, swarming riders, all done in layer upon layer of monochromatic watercolor. Her large-scale watercolors made their first appearance here, and were later called “evocative neo-noir” by the Curbed.NY architecture blog.
