It’s official, ladies and gentlemen — spring has officially sprung in New York City, and people came out in droves to catch a glimpse of the legendary Ron English in action as he worked on his latest project. The world famous Bowery wall, located in the heart of New York City’s Lower East Side on the corner of Houston and Bowery, has featured massive works of art by Retna, Faile, Barry McGee, and countless other street and graffiti artists.
Make no mistake about it, nobody will be debating English’s place in the sun on arguably the world’s most famous graffiti wall. In fact, this moment has been long overdue according to many in the art community. His history of painting murals and doing paste-ups spans nearly 30 years on these New York City streets.
Never short on clever antics, English’s most recent piece on this Lower East Side landmark is a composition of elements from hundreds of works spanning three decades. Together, they create an American flag topped off with the always-aggravated Temper Tot (English’s green, Hulk-like baby character) standing front-and-center. If you are in the New York City area and looking for a field trip, we highly suggest stopping by to see this massive piece.
