After nearly a whole year of being blocked by scaffolding, the Bowery Mural is back and as bold as ever. Last month, Ron English took over the wall and the result is insanely amazing.
Another "Temper Tot" has been residing in Little Italy for quite some time now, but it really doesn't compare to this neon, 3-D version currently residing on Bowery & Houston in the Lower East Side. I mean.....it's hard not to stare, right?!
Here are a few of my favorite details and close-ups. From sarcastic rebranding of some American cult classics, to the weird, random, and outright gross--everything about this wall screams pop art by Ron English. Popaganda, as he calls it, is hilariously entertaining. I could have stood on the corner here all day (but it was hot & I was wearing a leather jacket). After catching this mural for the first time, I realized that only seeing his art in galleries doesn't do it justice. His iconic style is truly larger than life, and is best viewed on a bustling street corner in Manhattan, for the public to digest and divulge.
It's been a while since I last posted, which really just means that now I have of art to catch up on. Stay tuned this week for another downtown street art adventure--from Little Italy to NoLiTa and Chelsea, I have so much more to show you!
