Glossblack Mural Gives Ludlow/Canal Corner a New Look


Here’s something new on the northwest corner of Ludlow Street and Canal Street.

The Philadelphia-based artist, Glossblack, just finished this new mural on the side of the Twin Marquis building at 39 Canal St. It’s a collaboration with the guys at Klughaus, the creative firm with strong roots in New York’s street art culture. Here’s what Glossback posted on his Instagram yesterday:

…thank you to everyone that stopped by to show support, offered us food/drinks, asked ridiculous questions or just stared at me for an uncomfortably long time.

The previous mural on this wall was commissioned by Bruce Cost Ginger Ale. It went up in the spring of 2011, just as Cost (who had just become a Lower East Side resident) was beginning to make his mark with the unfiltered ginger ale (now his product is everywhere).
