Street wear brand Nicopanda is behind the design for this expansive mural that stretches across the western façade of a tenement building at the corner of Allen Street and Stanton Street. on New York City’s Lower East Side. Known for its edgy and playful approach to ready-to-wear and accessories,  Nicopanda is the personal brand of style icon Nicola Formichetti. The Love Beyond Boarders mural is part of The New Allen project, is co-sponsored by MAC Cosmetics, and features a design based on Formichetti’s original Amoeba Panda print. While l I could not uncover an exact date of its creation, the mural appears to have been put up in early December, 2016.

“Our world feels divisive, right now, so the message of universal inclusivity is very important, and especially because many of our political leaders are suggesting otherwise,” Formichetti says in a statement on the brand’s website. “I believe in Love Beyond Borders, and that’s very much so at the core of Nicopanda.”

Jerkface is one of my favorite street artists for his use of popular, easily recognized cartoon characters in his sightly skewed cultural visions. This double-vision mural of Mickey Mouse went upon May of 2018 and it still looks pretty good!

While people will tell you that this piece is at Houston and Mott, you can see from the above photo that it is set quite far in on Mott Street, between Houston and Bleecker.
