Bowery Graffiti Wall is Being Whitewashed Ahead of Spanish Art Duo Pichi & Avo
Logan Hicks’ now-weathered mural at the Bowery Graffiti Wall – the SoHo street scene dubbed “Story of My Life” – is is undergoing removal as we speak. The mobile booms are out; let the erasure commence.
Spanish street art duo Pichi & Avo is reportedly next in line. The artists confirmed their participation in an email, albeit with the caveat, “if everything goes well.”
The tentative plan is to install the new artwork by the end of the month. And for a better idea of the stylings to expect, here’s an example of their output.
Goldman Properties has owned the Bowery graffiti wall since 2004. The rotating series of murals began four years later, ushered in by a Keith Haring reproduction on what would’ve been his 50th birthday. A larger encasement of the concrete slab followed, which allowed for the preservation of the Os Gemeos piece within.
Tony Goldman died in September 2012 at age 68.
