The hits just keep on coming in Lower Manhattan (despite the closing of LIT Lounge) as Beau Stanton, Ludo, and ASVP finished their murals in a tie-breaker this week for the LoMan Arts Festival. Somewhere in the village there is a very large Os Gemeos wall going up as well and we’re thinking of having a drink in Little Italy today after strolling on the High Line – Suddenly Manhattan feels sort of HOT.

Aaaand, it’s done! “My largest mural to date and first done with aerosol,” says Beau Stanton of this mind-splitting mural, as he encourages us to allow our thoughts and positive cogitations to continue to grow by the day.
In thanking his hosts he also gives a shout out to the guys at Project Renewal Men’s Shelter on his Facebook page. This part of town has been a refuge for folks down on their luck historically, although these places are disappearing quickly.

The French Street Artist Ludo also has buzzed the LES with “Anatomy of a Bee”, a characteristically frankenhybrid of nature and military technology. In town for a print release with Castor Gallery, Ludo’s been doing stuff with BSA in Brooklyn for years, but he says excitedly, “This is biggest piece I’ve done so far in New York!”

The collective ASVP is known primarily for their prints, so it was a new development to see them hand painting a mural. Surely to be a print their selling, this one is called “Make Your Own Luck,” a quintessential NYC sentiment that is at play AT ALL TIMES.
