    The return of Comelade: always delightful. At some point I would like to merge all of his posts, including this thread; sort of a tribute to this long-time, but only occasional visitor from France. There is always something for everyone: even LondonL. (LOL)

    Pics #4 & 5 are actually in West Chelsea (including the shot of one of my favorite images seen all around town: Grenade Boy). They're on W 20th / 21st near the WSH.

    Yes it's originally by Arbus: "Child with Toy Hand Grenade in Central Park" (1962)

    The street artist (JC2) gives full acknowledgement to Arbus.

    ‘Army of One’ Anti-War Artist and Firefighter Jef Campion Dies at 52

    http://www.boweryboogie.com/2014/01/...mpion-dies-52/

    Somber news to report in the street art world. Jef Campion, known in graf circles as Army of One/jc2, died on Friday. He was 52.

    The city firefighter, children’s charity advocate, and anti-war artist reportedly hanged himself in his Yonkers home on Friday, dying at St. Joesph’s Medical Center a short time later.

    Campion served as a city fireman since the mid-1980s, and was a first responder on 9/11, spending forty consecutive days at Ground Zero. The experiences forged during this trying time became the inspiration behind his Diane Arbus-inspired Army of One alter-ego. He told us in July 2012 that “nothing made sense to me anymore as a firefighter, let alone as an artist. Trying to return to life as I knew it, I realized the world lost its innocence, and children were being put in harm’s way through erroneous wars, poverty and disease.” ...
