Lend me your ear, because I want to tell you about Bushwick Collective’s latest East Village mural. This little number just went up on St. Marks Place, between First Avenue and Avenue A, right between David’s Cafe and the wall where a Poland tribute went up last month. The likeness of Vincent Van Gogh is by Brazilian artist Sipros, who has done similar portraits of Salvador Dali (on 35th Street and elsewhere), Frida Kahlo, Morgan Freeman, and, most recently, Prince. You may know him from this piece in Bushwick.
This wall is dedicated to rotating works, but if anyone tries to take this one down, we won’t hear of it.
