Bear Stencil on 2nd Ave., East Village, NYC

Lovin’ this stencil we found on 2nd Avenue in the East Village in New York City. When we saw this piece, we thought it looked like the work of U.K.-based Banksy, but on closer inspection it looks more like the work of seminal stencil artist Blek Le Rat. But could it easily be the work of another artist and likely is; the piece is signed at the bottom, but the moniker is illegible. (If any Global Graphica readers can identify the work, please drop us a line.)
