9 out of 10 people who know anything about anything agree that most ‘street art’ derives from either a stencil, screen-print, or large copy machine. Brooklyn artist Cosbe must not have gotten that memo or is working on a very limited budget.

Using chalk, postal labels and a nearly dried up Magnum, Cosbe’s been pecking away at the New York graffiti and street art scene for some time now with his low-fi approach. If you’re looking for images of Marilyn Monroe, war and peace, or children who know more than you, look elsewhere. If you like your art to look like it was created by a human hand, then stomped on with a human foot, look to Cosbe.
