Aakash Nihalani struck the white construction wall on Bedford first (look). But not long after, an army of Lou Reeds marched in and plastered the (Berlin) wall with ads for New York label Supreme. Over the weekend, Jake at Gothamist saw they got a little makeover:
The posters are simple, featuring a photo of musician Lou Reed (shot by Terry Richardson) wearing a Supreme t-shirt (accessorized with aviator sunglasses and a smug expression).Street artist Faile has now altered the images, with a tiger face in place of Lou’s, and the word “Vanity” in place of “Supreme.”
Aakash Nihali’s flickr stream is here, but not so surprisingly leaves out the cubes from the Atlantic Avenue subway station MoMa fiasco. Check out Gothamist for the Faile-modded Lou Reeds.
