Photographer's Note

During a recent walk on the Lower East Side, I was very happy to find a new mural that really demands some attention. :-)

At the intersection of Bowery and Houston Streets, there is a large wall that serves as a rotating public art space. In April pop artist Ron English put up his latest creation, which includes a large, green baby known as Temper Tot.

This artist is known for exploring brand imagery and advertising, and has created some iconic and eye-catching figures. Surrounding the angry baby are well-known ads, that have been changed to convey a sarcastic, anti-corporate message that targets big business.

I have saved a small surprise for the workshop photo. Pulling back and viewing the entire mural, we find that it is not just a giant baby surrounded by ads, but something more. :-)
