The well-known street artists known as #TatsCru just finished a colorful ode to New York, its street art and Lower East Side history, remembering the man who created the canvas we know today as the Bowery Wall, Tony Goldman, and Keith Haring, the first to create on the wall (1982). Let’s take a closer look.
On their website, TatsCru takes it from concept sketch to completion, during one of the coldest weeks so far this winter.

On the left side of the mural, a beautiful and thoughtful lower section, done in black and white, a look-back referencing Keith Haring, Kenny Scharf and others. Tributes to such iconic figures as Daze and Crash, and below ~ a tribute to the activist Liz Christy who began work on the First Community Garden in the early 1970s.
Bio, Nicer and BG183 (#TatsCru) can be found all over this City, in large group murals like Coney Walls and The Graffiti Hall of Fame on 106th Street, and in smaller, commissioned murals like a mural in a school yard for #EducationIsNotACrime. Follow on Twitter and Instagram.

The Bowery Wall is located on the corner of Bowery and Houston Street on the Lower East Side.
