Now At The High Line: ‘Honey, I Twisted Through More Damn Traffic Today’

Ruscha-2

If you find yourself strolling along Manhattan’s famed High Line this summer, be sure to check out Ed Ruscha’s new wall mural adjacent to the popular elevated park.

The artwork, titled ‘Honey, I twisted through more damn traffic today,’ was unveiled this month on W 22nd Street and the High Line.

The LA-based Ruscha is one of the most respected and accomplished conceptual artists in the world, specializing in language-based paintings combined with themes from popular culture.

In this piece, Ruscha attempts to create a witty commentary on the chaotic life in a modern metropolis.  According to The High Line Art website, his new mural ‘both exalts and criticizes the romance of city life, instantly turning the urban experience into a dialogue worthy of a Hollywood comedy or a Jack Kerouac novel.”

The artwork will be displayed on the High Line until May 2015.  It is Ruscha’s first-ever public commission in New York City.

This is definitely a must-see for all wall mural and street art lovers.
