This is the first work by Chico (Antonio Garcia) that I ever saw. Most of the time when I pass by on the bus there are cars or trucks blocking portions. I got lucky this time. Sadly for us, Chico is rumored to have packed his paints & brushes and moved south to be closer to his family. You can see more of his East Village murals here, here and here.
