The above shot was taken yesterday morning. Logan Hicks’ new stencil-mural at the Bowery Graffiti Wall is barely three weeks in the wild, and already netted its first hater. A silver scrawl the length of the canvas remained intact until the afternoon when it was scrubbed clean.

We’re told that the taggers were the duo Mq and Blake, and they are apparently against so-called “street artists.” Hence the desecration.

Either way, from what we understand, Goldman Properties (owner of the property) has taken extra measures to protect the wall from the errant taggers.

Logan Hicks stenciled the artwork, dubbed “Story of My Life,” in mid-August. “This new piece is about my time in New York,” Hicks noted in a prior press statement. “Doing a mural on the Houston Bowery Wall is a celebration of my ten year mark in New York.”
