Last day for the Os Gêmeos mural on Bowery and Houston?



This street mural by Brazilian street artists and identical twins Os Gêmeos went up at the Bowery and Houston last summer... Today is apparently the last day for the mural ... (The Deitch Projects Web site confirms this.) L Magazine (via BoweryBoogie) reported that Shepard Fairey will be the next (and last?) artist to paint the billboard space at this intersection.

That's fucked, I dig Shepard Fairey and all but that mural is incredible.

Agreed. This mural was one of the best pieces of art on display in the city the past year. Full stop. I spent some time this past Saturday taking it in one last time and snapping a bunch of photos. It will live forever! (digitally)

Too bad Fairey can't just add his piece on top - there's a lot of white space there.

Wow. A new mural by a hack-artist wannabe-plagiarist.
Couldn't be more appropriate.
