Jim Power, The Mosaic Man
The Mosaic Man, Jim Power, working on one of his East Village poles. Jim has been making these for 30 years. But due to development in Astor Place, many of his poles are in danger of being removed. Since I was a kid, Jim’s work fascinated me and drew me to NYC. His work is very site specific. The poles are literally a mosaic of the history of the neighborhood - a tapestry of notable events, artists, and icons.More photos of Jim Power, The Mosaic Man’s work.

Importance of Street

Jim Power, The Mosaic Man, talks about the importance of street art. “Art keeps the environment alive. It’s a constant reminder that we have people here. Like the lady who walked by me where she didn’t see the pole, but she didn’t see anybody else either. You got to wake up!” (East Village, NYC)

The poles are literally a mosaic of the history of the neighborhood - a tapestry of notable events, artists, and icons. The idea of the East Village without his work feels truly soulless. I will soon post a few video interviews with Jim, where he talks about the history of his work and the importance of street art. Stay tuned.More photos of Jim Power, The Mosaic Man’s work.
