Shepard Fairey's Deitch Wall, NYC

A little before 2AM last night, graffiti writer NAW decided to contribute to Shepard Fairey’s 99% done mural on Houston Street, but was abruptly thwarted by a security guard hired to babysit the wall. The vandal managed to escape by wiggling out of his shirt as the retired cop says he dialed 911 with one hand and tried to subdue him with the other. Behold the aftermath below.
