Mitchell Schorr's Race Car Murals

Street Art // Wednesday, August 29, 2012
I was riding bikes in New York with a friend and he pointed over to this mural of racecars and said, “That is my favorite muralist in the city.”  To be honest, I had seen the murals in passing before but never really gave them much attention. I started noticing them more and more, really taking a liking to them. They have a naïve, childish, and playful feel.
