Nick Walker (interviewed) spent the past two weeks in New York City hitting up various spots with his special brand of stencil magic. He invited AM along on some interactive action with the local urban landscape – some legal and some well … let’s just keep it on the downlow.
Scouting the Chelsea/meatpacking district for “prime & available” real estate can be tad difficult at 3 pm in the afternoon, but after a few laps at the usual haunts, we stumbled across the classic mural previously created by Conor Harrington (interviewed) at the corner of 13th and Wellington across the street from the Standard Hotel on the West End. To our surprise, part of the beautiful Conor mural was written over by some lame attempt at advertising/humor referring to male pattern baldness. Apparently, many agreed with our disappointment as parts of the tacky slogan were already starting to get to crossed out, which meant game-on for Nick to reclaim the spot for Street Art!
We documented the entire process from inception to completion (disclaimer: no Conor Harrington was hurt in the creation of this mural). Check all our pics of the creation of “Nutterfly” after the jump…
