Before PichiAvo Paints the Bowery Graffiti Wall, Taggers Go Crazy
The lame duck session at the Bowery Graffiti Wall has proven an opportune moment for taggers. In the week since Goldman Properties whitewashed the two-story encasement ahead of the next artist design, the fresh canvas has been attacked several times. Especially thanks to the perfect storm of inclement weather and lack of the usual security.
As previously reported, Spanish art duo PichiAvo is next to decorate the Bowery wall. The new mural is entitled “Urbanmythology,” with painting to begin on January 23 (weather permitting). According to a press release from property owner Goldman Properties, the artwork will remain on display until the end of May 2017, a much shorter stay than predecessor Logan Hicks.
“We are excited about the opportunity to bring our ‘Urbanmythology’ to the Houston Bowery wall, where we’ll combine classics that coexist in the city,” PichiAvo noted in the statement. “It is an honor and we are very excited to share our artistic concept with New York and the world in a year where we celebrate 10 years as PichiAvo, enjoying and working together as one.”
