“You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be found anywhere. You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe deserve your love and affection.”-Buddha

This jaw-dropping, stencil-painted mural created by Logan Hicks (@loganhicksny) is Bowery & Houston’s newest street art addition.  Painted in late August, this piece titled “Story of My Life” depicts a large crowd walking down Spring & Greene St. all in the same direction.  Although unfamiliar to us, this crowd includes people important to the artist’s life, including members of his family, such as his son who is actually depicted three times, as well as random passerbys who have been subjects in Hicks’ previous works.
The Bowery Houston mural, found in the Lower East Side, is a gem in the world of street art, as it encourages and promotes the acceptance of graffiti art in the streets of NYC.  Although the works change every three months to a year, the history of the wall can be traced back over 30 years.  More recently, the concept of the wall and the art it illustrates has been preserved  with the help of several different groups.
