Meres One, the curator of 5Pointz, has created his first work since the whitewashing of 5Pointz. This black and white piece, featuring his signature light bulbs, is located on the wall of rag & bone/JEAN at Elizabeth Street and Houston Street. Untapped Cities writer Rachel Fawn Alban checked it out Sunday night right after the mural was completed.
The retail brand invited Meres One to make the piece, which Meres calls a “Film Noir” version of his yellow “Bright Idea’ light bulbs. The wall at rag & bone changes art monthly, similar to Le Mur in Paris, which changes every two weeks.
5Pointz is calling the work a “first step back” for the organization and the bottom of the mural contains the hashtags 5Pointz and #RestinPause. Follow the work of Meres on Instagram.
