Last week Meres of 5Pointz and Spudbomb from Toronto collaborated on this piece in Little Italy, on one of The L.I.S.A. Project NYC‘s rotating walls. This was one of co-curator Wayne Rada’s ideas and I really wasn’t sure how this wall was gonna go, but I trust Meres and like that Spud took on Toronto’s mayor as a subject in his work, so I was curious. Seeing the finished product, I think the guys did a really great job. It’s a solid piece with each artist bringing their trademark characters to Little Italy and giving them a slight Italian twist. For me, what’s so fun about working on The L.I.S.A. Project is helping bring pieces like these to life. The work fits in with Little Italy, but it’s still not exactly the kind of mural you would expect to see there.
