L.A.-based street artist RETNA (aka Marquis Lewis) was tapped to design the latest mural on the legendary Bowery and Houston wall this past weekend, replacing FAILE’s stellar creation. The project marked ’s first official return to New York following his first ever NYC solo show last month. Battling inclement weather when he started the mural on Saturday, the artist strapped on a pair of Beats by Dre headphones and went quietly to work, finishing the undertaking the following day. The resulting mural is a red and blue pastiche of the artist’s signature letterform.
