hello there
I'm Happymaker, 16 and German. And I'm writing my seminar paper about NYC and it's street art!

So I just have a few questions to all (street) artists among you and it would be very nice of you to take a second and answer them (you don't have to answer all, just pick a few you like )

1. Why do you live in NYC?
2. Where do you find your inspiration in NYC?
3. What form of street art is your speciality and is it easy to exert in NYC?

I'm looking forward to many answers and I say a big THANK YOU in advance

I doubt you'll find any street artists here, and in fact I doubt you'll have much luck with getting answers generally. You might want to choose another subject.

Try a hipster blog or graffiti forum of some sort. I'm sure you'll find some answers there.

Don't most street artists like NYC because it has a lot of buildings to deface?

Diversity and density lead to an exchange of different ideas. New York's social amenities and walkability only multiply that. Also consider all the creative venues available like the MOMA and Guggenheim or our art schools.

Street art thrives in NYC. The urban culture bleeds it.
