The latest mural at the Bowery and Houston mural space is a huge pop of color and fun. Not that previous murals haven't been colorful, but they've followed a set color theme. How and Nosm used pinks and reds; Retna used red, white and blue, but this new Crash piece incorporates the whole rainbow and features one of my personal favorite childhood cartoons- Popeye. The mural is part American style cartoon, part Japanese style anime and a touch of Lichtenstein pop art. It all blends together perfectly to create the a vibrant backdrop for your spring East Village adventures. Check it out below.
