Michael De Feo’s street art flowers bring smiles to people everywhere they sprout up. The oversized blooms can be seen around New York City, but like any ephemeral art, are often covered over.

Not so with this one above SVA’s Dorm on 23rd. High above the street, De Feo’s flower stands protected against the grubby hands of other street artists, and has been going strong since the summer of 1994!!

His studio art is pretty incredible, too.
