BNE Backlash Grows
Bucky Turco saw the writing on the wall on Dec 9, in advance of a gallery opening for the artwork of enthusiastic sticker collector BNE, when Turco tweeted: "Let the hate begin, laf. BNE gets up in the New York Times."
Though it would have been hard to find a fan of BNE's work prior to his gallery opening, the critics have become more vocal since. In addition to the sticker photographed above on West 17th St., Bowery Boogie has seen evidence of other BNE stickers getting the cross out treatment, and others have taken to their Twitter to tell us how they really feel.
