A Fairey Alights on Houston and Bowery

ShareThis

This week, Shepard Fairey came to town to install a (legal) mural on the corner of Houston and Bowery as part of his upcoming show, May Day, at Deitch Projects. The wall has an impressive provenance: A Keith Haring mural, first painted in 1982, was repainted in 2008. This past July, Brazilian artists Os Gêmeos painted over it. Fairey and four assistants wheat-pasted the screen-printed collage of political protest on top of plywood, leaving the Gêmeos mural safe underneath.
