Eduardo Kobra’s Mural of Alfred Eisenstaedt’s Photo "VJ Day, The Kiss"

Eduardo Kobra painted these stunning murals on 25th Street at 10th Avenue in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan. The top mural takes inspiration from Alfred Eisenstaedt’s iconic photo of a sailor kissing a nurse on VJ Day in Times Square in New York City ("VJ Day, The Kiss"). The photo symbolizes the triumph of love over war and how America found relief in the silence of the guns. Below is a mural depicting vintage Times Square street scene.
