As Hurricane Sandy made its way towards New York City, Ron English and his assistant Beau Stanton worked feverishly to paint Ron’s first mural in Manhattan in about 25 years as part of The New York Comedy Festival and Vandalog’s The Art of Comedy. The Temper Tot is a character that Ron’s fans will be familiar with from past paintings, murals and an upcoming toy.
If you want to go see the mural for yourself, it’s on Mulberry Street between Canal and Hester in New York’s Little Italy. Or, stop by on Saturday at noon for The Art of Comedy‘s art crawl and we’ll be walking by all of the murals that Ron, Hanksy and gilf! have painted in Little Italy.
PS, thanks to Montana Cans for all the paint that made this wall possible.
