Despite Peter Vallone Jr.’s fundamentalist hate of graffiti and his contemptuous assertion that all spraypaint wielding artists are punks or criminal enablers, he just can’t escape it. Yesterday we took a look at his personally funded soccer team posing in front of a graffiti splashed wall for their team photo and now this mural featuring his dad, failed mayoral candidate Peter Vallone Sr. and granddad Judge Charles Vallone. It was designed and painted by female graffiti pioneer LADY PINK alongside her husband SMITH, a still notorious, tunnel painting vandal (and legendary street bombing king) last month. The mural was commissioned by the Salah M. Hassanein Variety Boys & Girls Club of Queens and features: “Anne Buehler, the club’s first executive director, surrounded by (clockwise from Buehler’s l.) former City Council Speaker Peter Vallone Sr., George Skouras, Judge Charles Vallone and Salah M.Hassanein.”
