This Graffiti Mural has replaced the Seated Ballerina in Rockefeller Center

It didn’t take long for the Seated Ballerina in Rockefeller Center to become one of the city’s most beloved piece of public art. Now she has been replaced by a gigantic graffiti mural by artist Jason Woodside.

It came as no surprise when the seated ballerina got an extension until July 17. Jeff Koons’s 45-foot inflatable ballerina was created in conjunction with Kiehl’s and the Art Production Fund in support of National Missing Children’s Month back in May. Thanks to a little pressure and the piece being so universally loved by the city and its tourists, she was given a reprieve from her original deflate date of June 2. Sadly all good things come to an end.

Now we welcome the New York based artist Jason Woodside’s massive mural, three adjoining graffiti walls, on the former base of Seated Ballerina. Sadly we’ll only be able to enjoy it for a week, unless, of course, it get’s an extension like its predecessor.

The piece is striking and is sure to capture the imagination of the city, so get ready to see the piece invading your Instagram feed. Here are some shots of the piece to tide you over until you get to see it for your own eyes.
