This mural depicting what appears to be the likeness of Union leader and labor organizer Caesar Chavez can be found on a building located on Layette Street between Canal and Howard.

However, despite the close resemblance to Chavez, the group of musicians clearly visible above his head makes me think that this man might actually be a famous musician. Sadly, I could find nothing about this mural on the Google, believe it or not.

These two pieces of art featuring the likeness of the late, great David Bowie (it feels so weird to type that) were originally featured in This Post from last summer, but I decided to haul them out again for an encore. Because, clicks.

A friend in Dublin, Ireland sent me the link to this mural of Bowie as Ziggy Stardust, which just went up in his neighborhood. I think it’s beautiful. You can read more about the mural at This Link!

Thanks to Finbar Hall for the Tip!

During his recent NYC residency which saw him eventually get arrested, the French Street Artist known as Invader put up this 8-Bit Andy Warhol on the side of the Standard Hotel on Third Avenue (Cooper Square) at East 5th Street. Nice.

Joey Ramone Memorial Mural in the Bowery

This image of the late Joey Ramone wearing a pair of bright red boxing gloves was created to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of The Ramones debuting at CBGB. The mural went up on September 3rd, 2015 but it took me a few weeks to get around to seeing it for the first time, in early October, which is when I took this photo while (literally) standing in the middle of the street between idling cars that were waiting for the light to change at the corner of Bleecker and the Bowery — directly across from the former location of the legendary music venue, which is now a John Varvatos Clothing Boutique. The mural was painted by Solus and John CRASH Matos, who you might remember from This Post.
