In August 2010 Barry McGee (aka Twist) and Josh Lazcano (aka Amaze) painted a mural on the iconic corner of Houston & Bowery in New York’s Lower East Side, covering the wall with hundreds of red tags, filling it up with the names and crews of different graffiti writers.

Murals were first commissioned at the wall in 2008, starting with the replica of a 1982 Keith Haring work to commemorate the late artist’s 50th birthday. In 2009 the wall was painted by Os Gemeos, in 2010 by Shepard Fairey and following Barry McGee in 2010 by Kenny Scharf, JR, Faile, Retna and others.
