Not since the Fancy Animal Carnival of 2016 has a menagerie of exotic of creatures like those you’ll see in Hacer: Transformations been set loose in NYC’s Garment District. For just a few more weeks, New Yorkers and visitors to Midtown Manhattan can experience a series of seven gigantic, origami-inspired sculptures that comprise this public art exhibit, which features two dark turquoise coyotes, two medium turquoise rabbits, a magenta elephant, a yellow dog and a green bear cub.

This fun and inspiring mural can be found on the security gate at East Village Vintage Collective, a vintage clothing store located at 545 East 12th Street (Between A and B), East Village, NYC. The mural went up in April of 2018.
Update: Frank repainted the mural to the design below in 2019, and the mural has stayed up into 2023!
