Musician and blogger, Amanda Palmer, gave this TED talk back…
Samadov Mushfig is a New York artist making waves around the world from his humble spray painting stand in Times Square.
As an untrained artist, he dreams of progressing from street art into art galleries and with videos of him at work going viral, he proves what one person can do with a heap of natural talent and a few basic tools…
Most nights you can find Mushfig in front of Planet Hollywood in Times Square, however during the daytime on Sundays, he is at the intersection of 47th Street and Broadway Avenue.
“Using tools such as the top of the spray paint can, colorful, interesting planets become visible. He paints in a 3-dimensional New York skyline — including the Statue of Liberty, using a cut-out — and the painting has transformed into something that belongs in an art gallery. Finishing touches include stars and comets, or reflections of a planet on water below.” – source
