Korean Artist Yoon Hyup Paints Newest Mural at Rag & Bone

Rag & Bone’s pseudo publicity stunt of employing former 5Pointz guru Meres One to paint their Elizabeth Street wall in December has come to its inevitable conclusion. After a month-long tenure, the collection of lightbulb characters was whitewashed earlier this week in preparation for the newest entrant in the Houston/Project series. The next artist at the plate, so to speak, is Seoul-born painter Yoon Hyup.
At first glance, this “arrow heavy” mural could be mistaken for Keith Haring. After all, some of the shapes and color schemes bear a marked resemblance to some of Haring’s output … (somewhere in there is the Radiant Baby). Nevertheless, we spotted Yoon Hyup painting the final brush strokes last night. He had been at it the last few days, even through the bitter cold temperatures.
