Watch Kenny Scharf Complete the “Puzzle”

Posted on: December 3rd, 2010 at 3:11 pm by

Since Kenny Scharf completed his jigsaw puzzle of blob-like heads at the corner of Bowery and East Houston, the social media sphere has been blowing up with glowing reviews from passersby.  It’s definitely nice to have some color back at the high-profile graffiti wall.

Anyway, GammaBlog created a nice video of the Brooklyn-based artist completing his mural, and proclaiming “the puzzle is filled.”

    Apologies for commenting this but after returning to your site after not being here for a few weeks, I’m a bit dismayed at the changes…
    While it’s obvious you’ve attempted to make it more slick and professional, which is smart – it just looks like a cluttered mess with the photo backgrounds…plus you can’t read the story from the main page? Nuisance! Any chance of changing things around a bit before settling? Not a relaxing read this way.

      Hi Iris,

      Everyone’s entitled to their opinions, so no need to apologize. Our ideas of cluttered must be different. By limiting the homepage of the site to pictures and short intros, it lets readers scan through faster to find stories they really want to read without scrolling for hours. The whole point was to make a cleaner interface without a million text links.

      If you like the stories, but not the design, you can always read the RSS feed too. http://feeds.boweryboogie.com/BoweryBoogieALowerEastSideChronicle/
