And that’s a wrap. After three days on a crane, Shepard Fairey finally completed his 30 x 40 foot mural on the southern exposure of 161 Bowery.

With the new plywood enclosure at the Bowery graffiti wall comes a rendering of the two-story building we can expect on the adjacent lot.

The episode is called “Exit Through the Kwik-E-Mart,” an obvious homage to Banksy’s Oscar-nominated film from 2010 (Exit Through the Gift Shop), and focuses on Bart’s newfound fascination with street art.
