American painter and stencil artist Amanda Marie was in New York last week for contemporary art show SCOPE. She left her mark in the city with a new whimsical and delicate street art piece.

Amanda Marie is known for drawing upon illustrations and characters reminiscent of mid 20th century children’s books. With her well-groomed boys and girls “she plays on the sameness and ubiquity of this instantly recognizable representation of wholesome American innocence.”

In this latest work her brigade of blonde school girls come face to face with a delicate flock of birds. The contrast of these chaste and playful motifs with the gritty New York wall is intriguing and surreal. We love how Amanda Marie is subverting street art stereotypes.
