Community To Shepard Fairey Muraltisement: You Don't Have To Go Home, But You Can't Stay Here
The muraltisement by acclaimed sticker artist Shepard Fairey at the Deitch Wall on Houston Street continues to suffer defacement. The wall was just patched up yesterday morning after being the recipient of multiple large holes. And last night, an exasperated community member left a message: Bring Back The Haring. Haring's mural of course, now only lives in your digital memories.
And Shep's piece, well, you almost feel bad for it. Though once under guard by professional security, as soon as the guard left, the damage began. After being fully bombed, used as a canvas by Paul Richard, cleaned, hit again, and the victim of other acts of vandalism, the wall seems to be falling into disrepair.
What does Shepard think about the haters? Watch the video below to hear what he says...
