SoHo Graffiti

This interesting graffiti caught my eye as I walked down Mercer Street in SoHo last weekend. It rare to see Asian inspired theme in graffiti art but this one looks like it has an Asian face. There is a little bubble above his head with a heart in it. I wonder what that means.

So what are your plans for the weekend?

"To Keish" seems by the same hand and ink. "Happy V/Day" is a bit hasty but it's probably related.
Nice graffiti anyway.

Love the simplicity of that graffiti... and the colours.
My weekend?
tomorrow my baby grandson has his First Birthday Party! WOOHOO! Party time!

It almost looks like he's in pain; until you notice the heart...he's sending a message or sent a message...

Most interesting.

He's shouting his passion to the skies. What I want to know is who's KEYSH (or is it KEVSH)? Whoever she (or he) is, I think this was their Valentine.
This weekend? Well, if I can ever drag myself away from the computer, I should get out on this pretty day—especially since nasty weather is predicted for tomorrow.

It woulod be interesting to find about the artist and the intention behind this graffiti; not always easy!

I"m not getting sucked into another grafitti discussion! HA Let's just say I'm not enamored with artists that use other people's property as their personal canvas.
