Wandering around the East Village and SoHo districts of New York was such a pleasure. I had no destination in mind and just went where my instincts led me. How exciting then to come across this magnificent Blondie tribute piece by Shepard Fairey.
In have not seen a Shepard Fairey street art piece before and the style and colours of this one are captivating. I am aware of his ultra famous ‘HOPE’ portrait of Barack Obama. I understand that the piece was created to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Blondie’s first album which was debuted at the CBGB’s club opposite. The wall was curated by the LISA project.
Many thanks to Sarah Sansom, street art hunter and contributor to Street Art Cities.
