Verizon tool carts
In New York, if not elsewhere, Verizon uses three-wheeled carts to haul and store tools and other equipment for telephone installation and repair. Often you'll see them parked on the street near a construction site. Two have been parked on my street for several months, in front of a building being renovated.
Sitting outside overnight, these carts become easy targets for sticker-graffiti and spray paint. The one above is a particularly good example, with its wide array of colorful, artistic stickers.
The carts themselves are kind of nondescript looking, until you get close up and start checking them out in more detail.
I'm not sure who Korn is (besides a band), but Neckface has been a particularly well-known local graffiti artist for years. You can see that Verizon cleans the stickers off the carts from time to time, but obviously they just can't keep up.
Which is a good thing, as far as I'm concerned.
