Joe Iurato, a street and commercial artist from New Jersey, has been making tiny wooden figures and leaves them around the city.
The pieces are usually based on photography (his own and of others) as well as his real-life experiences. The wooden cutouts are often placed in specific locations to look as if they’re interacting with the surroundings.
“One of the elements that I love about doing these smaller pieces is the surprise factor. You might see it. You might not,” he told Brooklyn Street Art. “If you do, though, it’s not something that grabbed you from across the street like a massive 40′ mural would. Chances are you caught it from the corner of your eye just a few feet away, and the connection made is intimate.”
