For the next couple of days, stencil-artist innovator Logan Hicks will occupy the corner of Delancey and Suffolk Street, installing — with all necessary permissions and, hopefully, no hassle from Johnny Law — a full-size wall mural as part of the L.I.S.A. (Little Italy Street Art) Project NYC.
As of this morning, the wall was a field of dark blue, echoing the corporate colors of the Burger King next door. But it’s the paint company, Liquitex, that’s providing all the paint and supplies as well as paying for the extensive stencils.
Hicks is Banksy-approved, and if his previous work is any indication, the corner of Suffolk at Delancey is about to become… beautiful.
