Shepard Fairey Not Interested In Bringing Back Keith Haring Mural
Shepard Fairey's muraltisement on Houston Street faces frequent defacement, and it seemed the Fairey team had given up on removing all instances that. The recent call to "Bring Back The Haring" however, was quickly blacked out. It's a moot point anyways, the Haring mural was painted over last year, but the sentiment is understood.
The truth is, Shepard's mural, succumbing to the vagaries of the street and tarnished with various acts of graffiti and vandalism, looks more historic and pleasing than it ever did prior. It is almost iconic, becoming some kind of visual representation of the struggles of a different kind happening all around it on the Bowery.
