NYPD Admires Freshly Bombed Deitch Wall By Barry McGee And Co.
Even an NYPD officer can appreciate the stunning new work on the Deitch Wall at Houston Street by Twist and company. The officer driving by late last night stopped his paddy wagon well short of a red light to take a few moments to admire the newly bombed wall. It's quite possible he is pleased as everyone to see the uninspired and obnoxious work of Shepard Fairey finally banished from that corner.
Twist, aka Barry McGee, and friends worked into the wee hours of yesterday morning to complete the wall, being questioned by the police on at least two occasions during the process of creating the commissioned and permitted work. The Art Collectors documented all of it and more, from 12am to 6am, including a roll over car accident on the street that happened only yards away.
