Mosaic Man

One of the unusual features or quirks of New York City’s Lower East Side are these beautiful telephone pole mosaics. It’s easy to miss them or never even notice them, but for more than 30 years Vietnam War vet and former union carpenter Jim Power has crafted them.

Etsy catches up with the artist who’s become known as “the Mosaic Man” as he continues work on the Mosaic Trail — eighty lampposts covered in mosaics representing significant areas and people of the East Village.
