Blondie on Bleecker
About this artwork
The scene is Bleecker Street at Bowery in NoHo, explains artist Nick Savides. The feature is an adaptation of Shepard Fairey's Blondie mural, featuring Debbie Harry. Here, Nick is interested in not just the mural but depicting it in its setting, providing context. In adapting this image as an oil painting, he renders the figures realistically rather than stylized.
