Oh, what pure joy it was to stumble upon this fantastic mural by the great Buff Monster while I was walking home from an already wildly successful Street Art Safari in Freeman Alley. Featuring the artist’s beloved and iconic Mister Melty character, the mural is located just inside a gated parking lot (visible and fully accessible from the street, as seen in the photo below) on Allen Street just below Houston.
According to Buff Monster’s Instagram, this piece went up in late October and is just his second outside project painted all year! Because 2020 has sucked that hard!
I love the artist’s pristine attention to detail, which includes painting the mural over the metal guardrail, instead of restricting his canvas to just the wall behind it.
