Don’t cry for him as he will be replaced with another mural later this year. Here’s what we know.
A well-loved mural at 18th and Lexington will have to be removed due to construction
Capp Street Crap took a snapshot of a piece of the mural already getting painted over with primer, and the work to fix the building’s exterior is scheduled to take several weeks.
Though the mural was set up to fail ever so sadly, “We used the old decayed off-white paint as our background and only prepped the areas that we painted,“ Noble explains. "We had a very ramshackle aesthetic going on at that point. I soon became much more precious about my surfaces.”
Noble then reflected on the love that the mural got throughout the years, “This mural got a lot of favorable response in SF. It’s still there as of this writing, but it won’t survive much longer, as we used the old decayed off white paint as our background and only prepped the areas that we painted. We had a very ramshackle aesthetic going on at that point. I soon became much more precious about my surfaces.“
Expect to see new art on the wall by the end of Septemeber.
