    Street art in New York City combines two of our favorite concepts: beauty in all its colors and forms, and stuff that's free. While even the most affordable of museums are still, well, not-so-affordable, elaborate graffiti is always accessible to New Yorkers at no cost, and can be just as spectacular — if not more so — than what's stored indoors. 

    Murals that pay homage to cultural icons are especially cool players in the street art scene. They take portraits that are often ubiquitous, commercial and frankly, a little tired, and give them a welcome wink. Wild prints transform Audrey Hepburn's conservative coiffure; abstraction and Anna Wintour's injunction on head-to-toe black make for a stunning collision; and quirky caricatures memorialize faces we can no longer see IRL

    Of course, spotting incredible street art isn't as easy as ogling the everyday graffiti outside your local bodega. With a little help from the experts at Street Art NYC, we've mapped out the Big Apple's best celebrity murals, for the ultimate New York tour de face (and maybe even a cool #OOTD snap, too).
