Local blocks have their way of decorating old tree planters and a creative variation on West 122nd Street just by ACP/7th Avenue seems to have come about. We have seen picket fences, cast iron variations and now it appears that decoupage has made its debut. Decoupage is the art of cutting out various pattern or printed paper and glueing them on to a surface for a decorative affect. Everything is then sealed with some sort of clear coat and thus the final work of art remains intact. Based on the quirky selection on this particular example of decoupage, we think certain designer duo on the block might have something to do with this one since the YSL cutting is quite remarkable to our fashionable eye.
