Maybe he’s transformed the neighborhood into a mini-graffiti zoo? Happy hunting! And we’ll report back soon.
Animal is reporting it is located at East 162nd Street and Jerome Avenue, though they do not intersect, so we’re guessing it is by those two streets. We still have to confirm this.
In other news, Banksy — obviously — isn’t the only street art game in town, so Swoon’s recent mural that popped up at the Bowery mural on Houston is a welcome addition to the streetscape, but another artist, Invader, has also shown up to hit various spots around downtown Manhattan (he doesn’t appear to have ventured far beyond that area).
