Bowery Street Sign Becomes Tribute to David Bowie During Blizzard
Two enterprising vandals with proverbial balls installed a highly-visible David Bowie tribute beside the Bowery graffiti wall. Major ups in the intersection of East Houston.
Artists associated with the Little Italt Street Art Project joined some friends to capitalize on the fortuitous silence of the crippling blizzard for installation. One longtime Boogie reader caught the aftermath. And as the well-documented event illustrates, the crew imported a ginormous extension ladder to paint the word “David” on the street sign for the “Bowery.”
Description of the graffiti: “Under Pressure with some Young Americans and a crazy English street artist for Star Man, David Bowery.”
Get it? David Bowery. A play-on-words for the dearly departed musician.
