Kenny Scharf’s New Bowery Mural

Over the weekend graffiti artist Kenny Scharf put the finishing touches on a new large-scale painting, the fifth installment in the Bowery mural series. A joint project from The Hole gallery and Tony Goldman, the real-estate developer who owns the concrete space at the corner of Bowery and Houston, the series began with a re-creation of a Keith Haring painting from 1982, and continued with murals by Os Gemeos, Shepard Fairey, and Barry McGee. Click through for a closer look at Scharf’s mural, as well as images of the previous murals that have occupied the space.
