Tiger Mural By Key Detail at the Second Avenue F Train Stop
The F Train station at Second Avenue and East 2nd Street in the East Village was closed for renovations for part of this past summer, which means we had to do without new street art that is known to enhance the wall just adjacent to the entrance.

Street Art Wall at the Second Avenue F Train Subway Stop
While you can’t really help but notice this colorful wall at the entrance to the F Subway Line at Second Avenue and Houston Street, it takes a keen eye to spot the many street artist and taggers represented in this confined space. Aside from the large Skull and Demon Mural (not sure who the artist is, clues left in the comments are appreciated) displayed on the southern exposure of the Avalon Chemists building, we noticed the following:
Black and white tile portrait of David Bowie by Zimad.
Suckadelic Star Wars parody action figure: Gay Empire Homotrooper.
Update March 12, 2017
I walked by today and the mural has recently been changed to this vibrant abstract by JPO ART, which I like much better than the previous design. As you can see, the Hektad, Suckdelic and Zimad pieces are still intact.
