Tats Cru Tapped For Bowery Mural Wall

Posted on: January 16th, 2019 at 5:05 am by and

At the Bowery Mural Wall it’s one icon after another.

The slate was wiped clean, so to speak, late last week. Gone is JR’s anti-gun proclamation, just in time to make way for Tats Cru.

The legendary outfit teamed up with Crash One for the effort, which began at the wall yesterday with the outlining. (The latter artist is a veteran of the program, having imparted Popeye in 2013.)

Below is a mock-up of the mural, courtesy of BIO from Tats Cru:

This is the first graffiti crew to bless the wall thus begging the question: will this wall garner more respect i.e. not be vandalized by other crews?

Time will tell.
