Earlier this week, Lewy added his name to the short list of legends who have hit up the Brooklyn Bridge with their graf skills. The tags were buffed over quickly but not before photos were taken of the first work on the spot in over a decade. The fill-ins were put up in the cover of darkness 119 feet up and were repeated three times by the daring and prolific artist. Via 12OzProphet.

The public showing that started during Armory Week was put together by Parks & Recreation, The Fund for Park Avenue, and the Art Nouveau Gallery. Other artists who have exhibited in the same […]
