As promised, artist Nicolas Forker put up a mural on Rag & Bone's Elizabeth Street wall this weekend, and Bowery Boogie has the photos. The work is called "Action Man," a title that seems to be deliberately ironic, since it's a picture of an astronaut sitting on a couch. Compared with the layers of Lady Gaga Supreme ads and graffiti that came before, it's a little bland, but we're sure local taggers will spruce it up soon enough.
