Lower East Side native, Ori Carino, just painted an excellent new mural on the facade of Rag & Bone. The street artist put the finishing touches of paintwork earlier this week, and it’s easily one of the better additions to this space in recent months.

Carino frequently throws up murals around the neighborhood, including a few last August along Avenue A.

Rag & Bone has been pimping its Elizabeth Street facade for art since its inception six years ago. It started with a tribute to Cafe Colonial, the beloved restaurant it replaced. Murals are typically unveiled bimonthly as part of the store’s “Houston/Project.”

About Carino:

Ori Carino was born in a Houston Street loft in downtown Manhattan, NYC (Dec, 1982). He was raised within the Lower East Side art-movement of the 80s, living in a functioning gallery on Houston street until he was seven, (the gallery was run by Carino’s step-father Toyo Tsuchiya, who hosted appearances by Techen Shieh, Kwok Mang Ho, and Monty Cantsin, among others.) As well as frequenting Rivington School and No Se No as a young boy, (Also founded and run by Tsuchiya). When he was five, Carino had a chance meeting with Keith Haring who had Carino paint a sun on his local mural.
