Last week Lori and I were walking through Union Square in Manhattan and we came across our friend Joe Mangrum who was creating one of his beautiful sand paintings on the sidewalk. Like all of his ephemeral sand paintings, this one was swept up by Joe at the end of the day.
Joe recently released a book of his art “Painting New York”. If you run into him in NYC you can purchase a copy in person using Square. He’s one of the first street artists who is using Square for payments, hopefully more will in the future.
If you are in NYC follow Joe on Twitter to see where he’ll be doing his next sand painting.
