Public space alterer JR posted up this massive piece of work on the corner of the Bowery and Houston late last week to promote himself and an upcoming street art exhibit. Subjected to the law of the streets, the piece was quickly tagged and although that is certainly not unexpected, the time frame in which notorious two letter bombing king RD hit it is. While walking past the piece Friday night, I noticed a SKI throw-up with some surrounding ACC (All City Crew) tags, but within an hour or so of walking back past it, there was fresh pink RD tags. Considering how many people were out and about, it’s pretty amazing that he was even able to pull this shit off. Then again, MARTY did the same thing across the street during the day. Jump for a close-up of RD’s beautification.
