Breaking … Awesome New Mural by Swoon Going Up at Deitch Wall NYC …

We were riding by the Deitch Wall in New York City Wednesday evening when we came across the artist Swoon hard at work on a massive new mural. The artwork looked to be about 90% complete and Swoon herself was working details with a brush from atop a hydraulic platform. We’ve been following Swoon’s work for years, starting with her sublime street art in the early 2000s. In fact, photos of Swoon’s artwork were among the very first series of posts to our blog way back in the day. We’ll be revisiting the Deitch Wall in the coming days so look for more pix and posts, and if you’re in NYC, stop by and see the art for yourself. The Deitch Wall is at the corner of Bowery and Houston Street in the Lower East Side.
