Lakwena’s Instagram Shill at the Bowery Mural Wall is Bombed
London-based artist Lakwena teamed up with Instagram and Goldman Properties last summer to paint a “socially conscious” statement at the Bowery Mural Wall. Four months later, the kaleidescopic “KindComment” marketing stunt is receiving nothing of the kind.
Since then, the space has pretty much devolved into disaster, as taggers galore made quick work. Over this past weekend, though, the slab was bombed into submission.
Someone named “Anna” rolled those letters across the entirety of the surface in white paint.
Regardless, it won’t be long before the changing of the guard here.
