Brazilian street artist, Kobra has been bringing his A-game to New York City walls over the past few months. His newest mural in the Lower East Side pays tribute to the “27 club.”
Passing by the corner of Rivington and Forsyth Streets, you’ll be confronted with the newest mural of Brazilian artist, Kobra. For the past few months he has been working on murals all across the city including one of Michael Jackson, Ghandi and Mother Theresa, and the stunning “The Braves of 9/11” tribute to first responders.
The newest mural, which memorializes the “27 club”- artists and musicians who died at age 27- is true to Kobra’s colorful, kaleidoscope style. The split face motif is reminiscent of his other work, especially the East Village mural of Michael Jackson. Featured on this wall are Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Kurt Cobain and Amy Winehouse.
