The artist ALEC has made a career of street art and massive murals with images of pop-culture icons and celebrities from New York City to far-flung corners like Bali, Indonesia. It’s fitting — and perhaps inevitable — that in the heart of Hollywood he would paint a mural of legendary film actress Marilyn Monroe, a cinematic icons who best represents the spectrum of Hollywood fame, glitz and glamour, and ultimately tragedy.
New York street art: Another one of those celebrity-image and Andy Warhol pop-art mash-ups by artist Mr. Brainwash that have been appearing around lower Manhattan the past few months. This one of actor Leonard Nimoy, who played Spock on Star Trek, and Warhol’s famous Marilyn Monroe silkscreen painting can be found on the exterior wall of Lasso, a restaurant at the corner of Kenmare and Mott streets in Nolita.
