Comme de Garcons Building

The Comme de Garcons building on West 22nd Street is set amidst a heavily art-ed area, with Beuy’s 7,000 Oaks a slew of galleries and the Chelsea Art Museum on the same street. The building itself has a Futurist entrance way, a metal spaceship looking portal which extends from the street into the middle of the store, sucking visitors in.

Comme-De-Garcons

Street artists started covering the façade of the building with wheat pastes, and it quickly became a street art hot-spot. The owner of the building became a fan of wheat pastes, and allowed French artist Invader to install one of his Space Invaders on the building- a Green Pacman Ghost. Other artists that have been pasting there: Judith Supine, Gaia, Shepard Fairey, Sharktoof and more.
