Mosstika’s Moss Graffiti Fishes Swim the Streets of New York
Posted By Yuka Yoneda On February 4, 2013 @ 10:30 am In Art NYC,Brooklyn | No Comments
The brainchild of artist Edina Tokodi , Mosstika challenges traditional notions of graffiti by adding living moss to city walls. The often tongue-in-cheek masterpieces have an element of surprise that, in our opinion, makes them even more appealing than the ubiquitous spraypainted walls you might see almost anywhere in New York City.
Some of our Mosstika favorites include giant pine air fresheners  and moss Bambis , but we’re also intrigued by some of the newer offerings, which include green fishes and, well, we’re not quite sure what this is  but it’s certainly eye-catching!
Tokodi’s works may seem fragile (they are made of living plants, after all), so you might be surprised to hear that these moss fish  in downtown Brooklyn survived Hurricane Sandy with just a bit of wear and tear. For even more green graffiti goodness, check out our past Mosstika posts here  and here .
