Kenny Scharf Mural is Complete
Artist Kenny Scharf finished his mural masterpiece yesterday, just shy of one week after spray-painting first began at the graffiti wall. The colorful collection of cartoon faces at the corner of Bowery and East Houston is no doubt a refreshing change from the Barry McGee wall of tags. Just ask Pee Wee Herman, who dropped in this past Monday on his day off from Broadway.
Meanwhile, Scharf is none too worried about vandals destroying his work. The artist told Animal NY, “No, I’m not Shepard Fairey. Not to knock him or anything, but I’m not putting up wallpaper made safely in a studio.”
What do you think of the new mural?
