A wrap at the Bowery Mural Wall

David Flores has wrapped up work at the Bowery Mural Wall after several days

According to a description of the work, the mosaic-style mural depicts "a motorcyclist driving into the street spreading florals out the back of the bike. The goal of the piece is to bring an element of fun to the daily lives of the community."

"spreading florals out the back of the bike." That's a good one. More like pollution, and noise, and more noise and more noise. And as my Grandma always said, "Empty barrels make the most noise."

hywel dda, you got it right. Nice mural but "spreading florals out the back of a bike" is a misnomer if ever there was one. I thought once the Hell's Angels moved out the neighborhood would get quieter. Not a chance. Between the new style, wheelie, no muffler gangs roving the streets at all hours, the now rotting and often stinking restaurant shack, party noise that now dominates from Thursday to Sunday, it is nosier than ever. Florals! Give me a break. The guy obviously does not live on an avenue in the EV.

Based on these two comments, clearly imagination is a thing of the past.

Empty barrels do make moist noise. I agree! I do not hear flowers.

What a lovely piece! It's great to see a huge splash of red on the Bowery like that!! Leave it to the EVGrumps to whine about a beautiful mural.....

Good news grumps -- Electric Motorcycles are coming soon. They're super quiet, don't pollute and are better for the environment all around. Also note that motorcycles cause far less pollution than 4-wheeled-vehicles :)

Conceptually, this has to be the most idiotic wall graphic I've ever seen. The nicest thing I can say about it is it's pointless, vacuous, and completely lacking any aesthetic value. I hope they tag the shit out of it.

Great photo, with the real bike whizzing by the painted bike!

And yeah, the mural isn't to my taste, but the nice thing about that wall is it's gonna be something else soon enough.
