Street Writer RETNA Returns to Tag the Bowery
Street writer RETNA recently returned to the Lower East Side after a notable two-year absence. His last paintwork in the neighborhood was at the Bowery graffiti wall in March 2012. Over the weekend, however, the LA-based artist was busy decorating the Rivington Street wall directly outside On Stellar Rays (near the Bowery). His token Hieroglyphics style of symbols were painted in a pattern of silver-on-black.
Reason for the new mural is across the street, inside the Rivington entrance of 215 Bowery. For the time being, it seems to be a temporary residence for RETNA. At least until the week is up. By next Sunday, a new gallery is set to debut in this space.
Two Rams Gallery will open in this third of 215 Bowery on March 15. The inaugural exhibit is a solo affair by Lia Chavez called “Carceri.”
