Shepard Fairey’s May Day Mural on Bowery & Houston


It has been forever since we’ve posted something about Shepard Fairey that actually had to do with new work rather than controversy. So here you go. Earlier today Fairey told WNYC that this piece — which is a promo for his upcoming show at Deitch Projects — will be up for the next six months and is a critique of everything from global warming to political gridlock in Washington. He chose the location because it’s busy, and the same spot where Keith Haring’s Day-Glo mural went up in the early ’80s.

Have any New York readers seen Fairey’s latest in person yet? If so, leave us a review in the comments. [Image by Cameron Schiller via Wooster Collective]
