People that have visited New York in the last year may remember seeing the Keith Haring day-glo mural recreated on the corner of Houston and Bowery in honor of the artist’s 50th birthday. Earlier this week, word circulated that the mural had been whited-out. But what was at first sad news has turned out to be good news.
Guess which pair of street art twins (hint: They’re from Brazil) have stepped up and are already working this iconic spot? None other than Os Gemeos! Fresh off their museum show at the CCBB inÂ Rio De Janeiro, the Latin American street art sensations are back in the Big Apple armed with an arsenal of spray cans andÂ ten days to kill. We popped by today and caught some cool shots of the mural in progress and can’t wait to see what this will look like a few days from now.
We’ll keep you posted. For now, check out more detailed pics of the mural in progress after the jump.
