Final mural shot.

Houston/Bowery, NYC 3.4.12 – Day 2 comes to a late night close and sees the new mural by West Coast artist/MSK representative, RETNA, in a state of completion. I spent 2 long days/nights documenting the progress of this mural on the legendary wall owned by Tony Goldman Properties. This famous wall has been graced by the likes of Keith Haring back in the early 80’s and subsequently a few years ago, a tribute to him by his friend and partner LA2. Other artists to bless this wall include, Os Gemeos, Faile, Shepard Fairey, Kenny Scharf, and JR to name a few.

You can see a pic of the universal message put forth by this amazing calligraphic artist…as well as interdispersing a few friends and family names in the mix.
