While the Goldman graffiti wall parties like its 2009, the Elizabeth Street facade of Rag & Bone has some new color. The upscale boutique tapped the services of street artist Jerkface (and Green Villain), who specializes in pop-culture paintwork. He’s also quite active in the neighborhood these days, having painted a Homer Simpson piece on an Eldridge gate.

Jerkface kept with the cartoon theme – a mural bearing a faceless Richie Rich, surrounded by stacks of cash.

Definitely interesting to see the clash of art and business here. Indeed, a mural about money and greed that graces the wall of a luxury brand like Rag & Bone.
