This past weekend, I was walking in my absolute favorite spot Uptown, Inwood Hill Park, when I came across one of Young Jee’s latest natural art installations. No, Young Jee is not a rapper as his name might imply. Young Jee is an older Asian man who frequents the parks and creates these art installations in the woods of Inwood Hill Park.
The Parks Department is not too keen on his work and ends up removing it once they find it. Young Jee comes right back to the same spot and conjures up more art from leaves, twigs and vines. The pictures below are his most recent work and differ somewhat from the art that I saw just a month ago.
Young Jee passed away in August 26th, 2012 but the artist remains alive in the minds of those who encountered his sublime work in the wilds of that magnificent park.
