Fives years is forever in the life of a piece of NYC Street Art, but Shepard Fairey’s Obey Lotus Flower Stencil, which first went up at the end of June in 2011, is still loud and proud on the southern facade of 213 Bowery, at the corner of Rivington. I passed by it over the weekend and it looks darn good for its age.
Here’s a view of that corner from the traffic island in the middle of Bowery. And doesn’t This look familiar?
This mural of a whale-shaped ship with a Cyclops-eyed conquistador occupant was photographed at 213 Bowery (Corner of Rivington), home to Regent Restaurant Equipment. If you have any further information on the mural, such as the name of the artist (which I cannot quite make out), please feel free to leave it in the comments!
