Brooklyn Artist Creates Beautiful Glass Mosaic Pigeons for Public Art Installation on NYC Street Lamps

A Brooklyn-based artist known as "GB" only through his Instagram handle @gb_pigeon_nyc has been leaving dozens of glass mosaic pigeons on lamp posts all around Manhattan and Brooklyn.

With art reminiscent of Jim Power, the original "Mosaic Man" or the East Village, GB's art often occupies the same poles where Powers has left his mark decades earlier.

The artist has already placed over 50 glass pigeons around the City, and seems to have no interest in stopping anytime soon.
