The changing of the guards is in progress as the legendary mural space on the corner of Bowery & Houston in New York’s SoHo is set to undergo a new transformation under the spray cans of street legend Kenny Scharf.

The iconic wall which housed the Haring tribute transitioned to Os Gemeos to Shepard Fairey to Barry McGee and now back full circle to Kenny Scharf who was a peer and friend to the late Keith Haring. AM caught up with Kenny at the spot as he worked the cherry picker to start on the mural today. He informed us that the work is just beginning and he aims to complete the mural by next Tuesday before we meets us for Wynwood Walls at Miami’s Basel week.

Check out all the opening action after the jump.
