New York bodega offers up street art alongside everyday items in the East Village.

Street art isn’t something that can only appear in abandoned buildings, as proven by  RAE’s “Word Of Mouth” piece in the East Village that takes over an everyday bodega and transforms it into a living piece of art. Alongside everyday items such as bread, beans and lotto tickets, you can find a huge variety of drawings, paintings, stickers, and sculptures that cover the walls and other surfaces in the store.

As quoted by Gothamist, it was clear photographer Scott Lynch was impressed:

The attention to detail is awesome—the products, the security cameras, the pay phone, all of it—and people kept stopping in and saying, ‘Wait, is this a store?’ I loved it, it’s got street art and vanishing NYC angles.

If any of the items happen to catch your eye, you can purchase them from the gallery worker who doubles as a cashier. Be sure to check out the exhibit which will run through November 16th if you get the chance. It’s located on the corner of Avenue C and East 12th Street, and is open Thursday through Saturday from 2 to 7 p.m.
