Faces in Chelsea

In chalk faces on December 19, 2010 at 11:17 pm

“Felix Morelo- artist, local eccentric, and drawer of small faces. And there he was in Chelsea on Saturday. He drew a line of small faces from 20th to 30th street along 10th Avenue, dragging himself on a milk crate as he drew his way down the street, cold hands covered in chalk. Each face is different, there are distinct characters in the rudimentary chalk visages. Some of them give a talk balloon shout-out to the passers-by who stop and talk to Felix while he works. ‘Hello, Thinley!’, ‘Hello Heather!’, they exclaim.” Photos and text by Pearl Diving.
