Beastie Boys

We mentioned on Friday (7/25) that a Beastie Boys mural was being painted over the weekend at the LES corner of Ludrow and Rivington where the Paul's Boutique cover art was shot, in honor of that album's 25th anniversary. The mural's now finished, and SPIN points out that the artist behind it, Danielle Mastrion, has posted pictures to her instagram. That's the finished mural above. Check out a few more from the process, below...

does this chick have some sort of connection? seems arbitrary that she would be anointed to take on such a project.

question is, how long until this becomes authentic nyc covered in tags, advertisements, etc

I don't think anyone will write over it. Joe Strummer's artwork has never been tagged over. Anyone with any ounce of self worth has some respect.

A mural of a giant turd is more appropriate to represent BB music

I'm just wondering when someone is going to deface it and tag over it

The Paul's Beautique era is the Angel Dust puffing era...
I'm gonna light up a sherm down there and watch MCA's beard turn into a giant hummus platter like the one at Saint Anthony's feast.

Ad-Rock's nose and lips are all fucked up. Seriously, why are his lips that big?

Yeah 1:49, know facts before saying something stupid. Strummer mural was tagged over a few times.

Well done mural. I worry that iconic music heroes are a thing of the past. Will there be a Yeah Yeah Yeahs or Perfect Pussy mural for the next generation?.....

Who the heck are the Beastie Boys? They look old.

Shes hot, but she cannot fucking paint. Anybody who thinks this is a dope mural seriously needs to get their eyes checked. This shit looks so half assed

I love how you write in your blog. Thanks a lot for a great work!

Posted by friv | July 28, 2014 9:44 PM

@8:36 half assed for this artist is still bigger than most.

She has a nice big pearshaped Latina ass I'd love crashing down on my dick (icing my balls from the pain of her bouncing on it would be worth it.)

She's got a Georgia Peach on her rear end like a licence plate.

Posted by Anonymous | July 29, 2014 8:46 PM

All I'm saying is if her rear-end was a Hummus Platter, it most certainly would be Robust.

Posted by Anonymous | July 29, 2014 10:08 PM

She's ringing the dinner bell with that ass.

3:40- I spent a couple lost nights w/ a crew that new them in Boston around when License to Ill came out and they was a lot a dust done. Weird scene in retrospect. But a lot of fun at the time. Awesome they fucking pulled it off.

Oh....and that's a fucking horrible mural but nice shitter on the broad who did it. Glad I don't like in Playland and have to see it everyday. Other than that I'd love to live in Playland. Yup

This is Manhattan. Mural will last three days.

Who says a mural has to be permanent?

Posted by Anonymous | July 30, 2014 4:15 AM

The 4 mini dumpsters underneath the *mural* certainly give the viewing experience a je ne sais quoi.
