The Cooper Square Hotel is getting painted with graffiti in an attempt “to fit in with the edgy local art scene.” Four artists, Joyce Pensato, Nick 1, Vizie and Shinique, have been paid to paint the 5th street facade of the 21-story boutique hotel in various shades of grey. “All the work is going to be different,” Vizie tells the Post. Below his “Tropical Fantasy” tribute to Dash Snow, who overdosed at another swank hotel around the corner, an apparent portrait of Homer Simpson is taking shape towards the wall’s expected completion on November 10th.
