Shepard Fairey is Painting a New Bowery Mural Right Now

Street art star Shepard Fairey is hard at work on a new mural at 161 Bowery in Manhattan, reports Bowery Boogie. When completed, the piece will be 30 feet by 40 feet and will be his third Bowery mural to date. The others are his 2010 Houston Street painting — which was vandalized — and a painting in 2011 at 213 Bowery and Rivington Street, which still stands. The 161 Bowery mural is organized by OBEY GIANT ART, Caspi Development, and the Little Italy Merchants’ Association.
