This hauntingly beautiful disabled dancer resembles one of the Degas famous ballerinas, only this is no studio portrait, rather it’s the work of a graffiti artist. As reported on Nylon magazine’s new graffiti blog, the “demented” Degas was found around East Houston Street and First Avenue in Manhattan. While the post does not mention the artist one of the commentors reports this to be the work of a “Mr. Brainwash”. Since this very near us, we think we’ll go and investigate ourselves. Hopefully it is still there!
