Os Gemeos mural on the Bowery Graffiti Wall, 2009
The Tony Goldman-owned graffiti wall on the Bowery will be re-revealed next week, despite the ongoing construction at the Billy’s Antiques project site. But with a twist. The original concrete slab, last painted by street artists Os Gemeos in 2009, will make a surprise return next week for a limited time.
According to the Goldman Properties team, the “hidden” mural will have its day in the sun next Tuesday evening. Public unveiling is at 5pm.
The twins [Otavio and Gustavo Pandolfo] dedicated the mural to the memory of their friend Dash Snow, a fellow artist, who had recently passed. Upon completion of the mural’s run, with the concrete of the wall starting to degrade, a stud wall was placed over the mural in order to provide a stable canvas for the next artist. With construction of a new wall in the works next month, Goldman Properties plans to remove the stud wall and once more showcase the original wall featuring OSGEMEOS’ mural still intact.
