Chico Replaces Royal Wedding Mural with Loisaidas Bachata

Posted on: September 6th, 2011 at 6:18 am by

For the third time in two weeks, Chico has thrown up another neighborhood mural. El Nuevo Amanecer received a colorful tropical touch-up and LoHo Realty purchased a temporary plywood painting for its new concierge space on Grand Street.  Over the holiday weekend, though, the local legend returned to his domain – the Avenue B graffiti wall at East Houston which servies as high-profile easel for his artwork, commissioned or otherwise.

Gone is the four-month-old celebratory royal wedding mural.  In its stead is another painted advertisement for Lower East Side Bachata outfit Loisaidas, who actually preceded the caricatures of Prince William and Kate Middleton the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

Chico’s helper informed us during the paint-job that this mural will likely remain intact for six months before it’s deposed for something new.  What do you think of the new piece?
