I think I'm officially the last person to visit the newish Faile mural on Houston and Bowery. It's been up for a few weeks, but since moving to Brooklyn I don't get out to the East Village as much. I'm a huge Faile fan already, but this mural is just stunning. Kate and I were visiting a new pizza place on the Bowery and I just happened to have my old Nikon FM2n and a wide angle lens. Since the Os Gemeos mural disappeared in the Spring of 2010 this wall has pretty much been dead to me. There was a yawn-inducing Shepard Fairey piece for awhile and then a tag-riddled Kenny Sharf piece; neither added much to the city.
This one is a thing of beauty. As always, you can click on the picture for a larger version.
Yesterday Jess and Garrett posted some great pictures of the mural as well.
If you like Faile, here's an old post from the pop up arcade they did in the Lower East Side.
