Shepard Fairey just completed his latest mural on 1st Avenue in the East Village. It took longer than expected thanks to excessive rain the last several days, which complicated paintwork.
The Little Italy Street Art Project sponsored the Shepard Fairey mural. “Rise Above,” it says. Like the Black Flag song. The piece includes the likeness of his daughter, according to an official Instagram posting. “The image, ‘Vivi La Revolucion,’ features my oldest daughter and was originally created in 2008,” Fairey noted.
