Tom Sanford’s ‘Saints of the Lower East Side’

06.07.12 Allison Burtch

From the Harlem-based artist who brought you Charlie Sheen smoking rock, Bin Laden under the sea and other sublimations of tabloid media, here’s Tom Sanford’s new mural, paying homage to iconic Lower East Side cultural figures including Martin Wong, Joey Ramone, Miguel Pinero, Ellen Stewart, Charlie Parker, Arthur Fellig and Allen Ginsberg. Cool. A little bit of a sausagefest, but cool.
