New York City Graffiti Art T-Shirt Line With Authentic Street Images Announced

New York City is known for iconic landmarks and culture, but there’s more to the Big Apple than Times Square. A new line of shirts from artist Sarah James features fresh urban art with images taken straight from the city's streets.

The newest addition to Sarah James’ NYC Graffiti T-shirt line features Sarasvati, the Hindu Goddess of knowledge, music, arts, and wisdom. The long-sleeve tee is available in several sizes and colors.

Sarasvati is a favorite of students, artists, and scholars. On the image, the goddess is seated, playing a stringed instrument, imitating the rhythm and harmony of the universe. She wears a garland representing the power of meditation.

The graphic tee, featuring a photograph of authentic street art, makes a thoughtful wardrobe addition for those bored by cookie-cutter tees from souvenir shops and big box stores. It was designed with street fashion enthusiasts in mind who embrace the city’s rich, international culture.

New York City is incredibly diverse, with almost 15 percent of the population tracing Asian origins, according to recent data from the U.S. Census Bureau. Roughly 3 percent of city residents embrace the Hindu faith, making it the fourth largest religion practiced within the city limits. But intricate Hindu art gives its traditional images broader appeal among the population at large.

Street art combining images and text has been part of the city's culture for more than a century. The genre graduated from thought-provoking protest statements to true artistic illustrations during the 1980s. It’s this creative spirit that James, a Brooklyn native, aims to capture in her work.

Over the years, James has dabbled in creating merchandise combining her poetry with classic street art. These pursuits took the back burner due to frequent jazz gigs. When performances paused during the COVID-19 pandemic, she was able to invest her time and effort in works that brought street art far beyond the city limits.

Street art is constantly evolving in New York City, James says. Some of the best images are quickly lost to the public sanitation department, or passers-by who alter the work. These shirts help preserve some of the most provocative works found on the Lower East Side.

"Each image tells a story, is edgy, and most if not all of them are no longer where they were photographed," James says.
