[Houston at Bowery]
While walking to work today, I noticed the Keith Haring dedication mural on Houston was tagged. At least the street artists stayed within the lines.
UPDATE: Coincidentally, Gothamist received a tip in their inbox regarding these “modifications” [link].
“Hasn’t anyone noticed that the Haring memorial mural on Bowery and Houston was ‘modified’ last Tuesday with some painted on additions? The interesting thing here is that the man behind the ‘modifications’ is none other than LA II, a long lost collaborator of Haring’s who’s a graffiti artist from the lower east side. Years ago, he claimed that the Haring Foundation basically robbed him of the work he did with Haring. Now he’s back to reclaim his legacy the only way he knows how. This is a fucking story!”
