PryorCV: NYC Homeless Entrepreneur, Economy, Carpentry & Art
PryorCV defines himself as a “working artist”. This NYC Small Story began while walking along Houston avenue (just across from the Angelika theatre), my eyes were drawn to an array of small painted cardboard squares layed out on the sidewalk. On the corner of Houston and Broadway, you will meet Pratt University art school graduate Pryor. He calls himself a “working artist” as opposed to street vendor or pop-up store. While in the homeless shelter, he saw an opportunity in the excess cardboard. He revived his love of painting and used the cardboard around him as a cavas and began making art. It all started in 2008…Its a trying but optimistic story.
