Last night New York’s Cooper Square Hotel threw a party in honor of its new mural, which is a little unusual, even for the East Village.
Yes, that’s none other than Homer J. Simpson.
The hotel hired four graffitti artists to paint the mural: Nic 1, Bizie, Shinique Smith and Joyce Pensato. Homer was Pensato’s work.
But why Homer, when she paints so many other characters?I would have gone with Kenny Broflovski. From a much cooler, much edgier show.
Pensato’s been painting all sorts of cartoon characters for the last 30 years. This one’s from her solo show two years ago at Friedrich Pretzel Gallery in Chelsea. Check out more of her work here.
