Tats Cru Draws Lower East Side Inspiration at Bowery Mural Wall
The so-called “mural kings” brought the goods with this graphic cityscape that is essentially a Lower East Side homage. It includes a shout out to Keith Haring (the first to decorate the concrete in 1982), the Liz Christy Garden across the Bowery, and a mini version of the wall itself.
As previously stated, this is a big get for Goldman Properties, which is the owner/curator of the slab canvas. Tats Cru is the first full graffiti crew to paint a mural here.
“We wanted to do something to represent New York but we also wanted show a bit of history from the area,” BIO from Tats Cru told us in an email. “The left side was homage to when Keith Haring, Daze and others painted the Houston Bowery wall. On the lower right is a tribute to Liz Christy who started the garden across the street from the wall in the 1970s when the area was still rough.”
