New Bowery Wall Mural Ready for Viewing

Maya Hayuk Adds Color to the Bowery Wall

Maya Hayuk Adds Color to the Bowery Wall

Despite bad weather and freezing temperatures, Maya Hayuk preserved and finished her artistic contribution to the Bowery Wall, a brightly colored mural, which replaces Swoon’s work which depicted and remembered Hurricane Sandy.

Hayuk is a Brooklyn-based mural artist who is famous for her geometrical designs using fluorescent colors. Her creation for the Bowery Wall, located on Houston Street, is no exception. Hayuk is the third female artist whose work has been commissioned for the Bowery Wall after Swoon and Aiko Nakagawa in 2012.

Bearing a distinct resemblance to her other works of art, this mural uses shocking pink, bold blue, bright yellow and more to create an almost psychedelic, hypnotic, geometric effect which also blends in well with the down-home grittiness of the surrounding neighborhood.
