The Mac and Retna went big in Miami last weekend for Art Basel.  The two street artists went to work on a large mural featuring script by Retna and The Mac’s undenyable style. IF you haven’t seen these guys collaborate yet, it’s one of the best things to hit walls in a while.  I put in a picture of one of their past projects below.

ART // KEITH HARING MEMORIAL

May 4, 2008

This week in NYC a commemorative mural was painted on Houston and Bowery in remembrance of legendary pop/street artist Keith Haring. This Sunday May 4th, would of been the artists 50th birthday and to honor him, Deitch Projects and the Keith Haring Foundation recreated a mural that was originally painted by Haring in the exact same spot in 1982. Due to photo archives and paint samples that were recovered by scraping away the layers on the wall until the original piece was found, the mural has been reproduced to the exact specifications to which Haring had painted it. The mural will remain on the wall until December 21st and will be officially unveiled this Sunday with a dedication ceremony.
