Nick Walker Stencils The DL on Ludlow

Posted on: June 4th, 2012 at 6:28 am by

It’s been quite some time since we’ve seen the artistic endeavors of Bristol-based Nick Walker here in downtown NYC. The last work of note we remember was the collection of umbrella-toting dudes stenciled onto the Sullivan Street facade of Thunder Jackson’s two years ago.

His latest work, however, just hit the Lower East Side last week.  The so-called “Heart Vandal,” which first appeared in Paris, has been modified for New York, and now graces the side of nightlife newcomer The DL (f/k/a Ludlow Manor). This piece is probably the most exciting thing to happen to the club since its rocky opening at the beginning of the year.

Street Art News notes that another pair of “Heart Vandals” were thrown up in the Meatpacking District.
