Graffiti Artist Paints Strand Bookstore in NYC

Graffiti and street artist Toofly painted the Strand Bookstore in New York City last week. Above, we’ve embedded a snapshot of the mural. More photographs follow below…

The street art project promoted the release of XCIA’s Street Art Project: The First Four Decades, a collection of photographs taken by former CIA officer turned photographer Hank O’Neal. The book came out last week, and the publisher Siman Media Works will release an app version in April.

Check it out: “The Strand Bookstore, New York City’s legendary home of 18 miles of new, used, and rare books, will celebrate the publication of XCIA’s Street Art Project: The First Four Decades by Hank O’Neal (aka XCIA) by having street artist Toofly–paint in hand and feet on ladder–create street art on the 12th Street side of the store on walls that have long been blank.”
