LNY recently painted this mural, Golden Hour, at 22 East 2nd Street in New York City for Fourth Arts Block. It’s the same spot previously painted by Know Hope, Phlegm, and Faith47. Great work. Reminds of me Erica il Cane.

Here’s what LNY has to say about the piece:

It’s based on a couple of things; a beached whale found dead in NYC after Sandy, the battle between nature and human technology and the economic factors that facilitate this situation. The whole image should read as this struggle for survival between the whale/oil transit ship and the two headed heron snake that represents nature turning to technology by literally changing its body from one end to the other… I also decided on a title “Golden Hour” after the medical term meaning the period of time after traumatic injury during which treatment is most likely to prevent death.
