PIXOTE Bombs the White Space Above the Bowery Graffiti Wall
This image has been archived or removed.
The never-ending white space above the world famous Bowery graffiti wall usually remains untouched. It’s a space often utilized by Madison Avenue to sear neighborhood eyeballs with useless product, and generally out of reach for vandals. Some taggers have done it before (i.e. Shitfuck), but seasoned graffiti writer PIXOTE marked the spot with way more gusto (as is his style). This happened within the last couple days, while the city was busy with holiday cheer.
The eye-grabbing bomb on 294 Bowery is unavoidable, and in effect, upstages Swoon’s Sandy-related mural just thirty feet below.
PIXOTE has been in New York City ever since leaving Rio de Janeiro in 1994. Upon arrival, he ingratiated himself in the hardcore music scene, and was a regular around the Zoo York and Supreme skate crews. He is one of the few writers in the Five Boroughs who employs the pixação style native to Brazil.
