Late Linkin Park leadman is now memorialized on the Lower East Side.
Barely one month after Chester Bennington committed suicide at 41, an unknown fan stuck his image onto the facade of 159 Ludlow Street (aka 101 Stanton). The distinctive photo is itself framed by a television set and stands apart from the collage of street art fashioned by artist FLOOD.
Bennington was found dead July 20 on what would have been Chris Cornell’s 53rd birthday.
This particular street canvas first got its footing in April 2016 as a memorial to CBGB, late Beastie Boy Adam “MCA” Yauch (RIP 2012), and drummer/vocalist Raymond “Raybeez” Barbieri (RIP 1997) from Lower East Side hardcore band Warzone.
