Robin Williams-Like Mural Painted in the East Village

August 27, 2014 | Bucky Turco

Days after Robin Williams took his own life, aerosol tributes to the funnyman started popping all over the world, from Belgrade and Dublin to Los Angles and Brooklyn. And now, Manhattan.

The latest RIP wall was done by LES throwback and mural king Antonio Garcia, better known as “Chico.” The portrait style piece which sort of resembles Robin Williams if Robin Williams was a hobbit, is located on the corner of 13th Street and Avenue B in the East Village. As strange as this depiction looks, it’s still way better than that grisly dedication to Philip Seymour Hoffman. (Photo: Aymann Ismail/ANIMALNewYork)
