Chalk artist Hans Honschar wrote a special message on 75th street and Broadway, but unlike his usual messages it wasn’t upbeat and hopeful. In the piece, which includes a drawing of an expressionless bald-headed fellow, he claims the NYPD took his art supplies and asks for help in replacing them.
We checked with him to get more information and inquired with the 20th precinct but haven’t heard back. We’ll update this if we do find out more.
Update: Hans tells us that his supplies were taken while he was in Brooklyn. “I was interrupted while drawing a signature heartflower with a chalk marker. It erases easily so it leaves no permanent damage to the surface.”
