A skeletal Nick Wooster

Bradley Theodore is all over the Lower East Side these days.

Williamsburg Pizza still sports its unscathed Terry Richardson skeleton, recent controversy notwithstanding (allegations of sexual assault against models); Clinton Street newcomer Marm Cafe has a skull of its own behind their countertop; and Mission Cantina had one for about a day before the artist erased it over an impasse regarding credit. Now, Hotel Chantelle joins the club.

Bradley Theodore spent yesterday painting the facade of 92 Ludlow Street. This time around, street style fashion/retail guru Nick Wooster gets the skeletal treatment.

With this latest piece, Hotel Chantelle continues to embrace the street art trend. Their exterior still boasts two-year-old murals by Nick Walker.

What do you think of Theodore’s mural work?
