A New Mural Honoring Anthony Bourdain Debuts On The Lower East Side

by Stephanie Maida · July 18, 2018

    Ever since his untimely passing a month ago, New Yorkers have been paying tribute to the legendary chef, writer, and inspiring world explorer, Anthony Bourdain. Now, in addition to taking a pilgrimage to Bourdain's former (and now-shuttered) place of employment, Brasserie Les Halles, friends and fans can now visit a beautiful new mural honoring the late icon.

    Cool kid artist Bradley Theodore, beloved for his Insta-worthy street art portraits of Kate Moss, Anna Wintour, and Karl Lagerfeld, is behind the new piece, located at Delancey and Ludlow on the Lower East Side.

    Done in his signature style, the spray-painted work features colorful hearts and roses dotting the depiction. Theodore shared the completed painting on his Instagram with the caption, "In a city full of villains we all need heroes."
