James De La Vega

… known primarily for his murals and the chalk drawings he creates on public surfaces such as sidewalks. His murals can be found all over Spanish Harlem, and his chalk drawings may show up anywhere in the city. His street drawings, are usually accompanied by aphoristic messages such as “Become Your Dream.” Legally, much of his work qualifies as graffiti, although many put them in a separate genre. In 2004, Salon.com called him “probably the most revered street artist in New York.” via De La Vega.
