Chilean-born artist Maria Luisa Portuondo Vila has kicked off a city wide search for Missed Connection she experienced in New York City’s subway system last November.

Maria spread over 300 posters throughout various subway stops around the city, each styled exactly like the standard MTA service announcement signs placed throughout stations updating passengers on route changes and delays. These posters, however, carry a very different message – “Pay Attention NY! This is about my heart.”

In addition to a profile of the handsome stranger’s physical features, Maria included a hand-drawn headshot, which looks a lot like Johnny Depp in Alice in Wonderland. You’ve got one day till Valentine’s to find your mystery man, Maria.
