BY THE VILLAGE SUN | Even the graffiti is in bad shape these days in New York.
The famed E. Houston Street graffiti wall a.k.a. the Houston Bowery Wall is usually filled by a rotating display of murals by street artists. But the stretch of wall, just west of the Bowery, is not looking too good right now.
In fact, it appears to have been “bombed” by taggers.
Maybe it’s just awaiting a new mural.
Keith Haring created the first mural at the spot in 1982. Since then, artists who have sprayed their stuff on its iconic surface include the likes of Shephard Fairey, Os Gêmeos, Kenny Scharf, Aiko Nakagawa, TATS CRU, David Flores, JR and Banksy.
