More Street Art on Larchmont


Last weekend, we noticed the street art on the vacant building at 227 North Larchmont has been altered and another artist had added several aqua colored fish across the building’s facade including the glass doors.

In response to our query, street artist Punk Me Tender, sent the following message:

Recently someone damaged both of the pieces, so I went to fix it and in the same time change the pattern of one of the dresses.

I do not know the artist who added the fishes, I am not sure if I like it or not. From an artistic point of view, I do like it.

From a respectful point of view, I’m not sure. It might compromise the spot as the landlord might not appreciate the fact that this artist sprayed paint on the windows of his building. I believe there is a lack of maturity in this artistic act.

But who I am to judge?  This my own opinion and this is why I won’t do anything about it.

The fish also appeared on the side of the building at 152 North Larchmont currently under construction. Photos below show the locations of the new street art.

What do you think street art now appearing on Larchmont Blvd.?

  1. The entire thing is crap. Did the owners of the empty building commission “Punk Me Tender”? She does not have the right to inflict her lame fashion renderings and now dirty glued-on fabric onto our collective eyeballs. It’s not amusing or even provocative, just bad junky imagery. I wish the building owners would just take it out (I also wish they would get it together and rent the space….)

    • I have been going to Larchmont for over 35 years. I grew up in the neighborhood. Over the years, I have seen every single mom and pop shop dissapear so that a hip new coffee shop or chain business (Starbucks, Noah’s etc) can takeover. I love punk me tender’s work on Larchmont. Aesthetically, but also because of what t means to me. It’s free, it’s beautiful and it’s the first time in years I’ve been excited about something new on Larchmont. The fantastic thing about art is that we can all have our own opinions- beauty is in the eye of the beholder. xo

  2. Wait, punk me tender is doing maintenance on his Larchmont installations? Call me old school – I lived in lower NYC in the early 80’s and we never made adjustments to our work. I do appreciate his/her tolerant attitude to the proximal fish art that seems meaningless and rather uninteresting. I want to see smart!

  3. I’ve seen a ton of street art, graffiti and gang tags, but Punk Me Tender is, by far, the best in style, colors, mixed media and technique. Fabric originally on the first piece was inspired…great color choices and execution. Sent copies to artist friends who loved it. Made the now obsolete building interesting, and has turned into a convo piece with adjoining customers while waiting for spaghetti at Vernetti’s. Something my picky Grandpa could love as he appreciated new work bringing old to life (not plastic surgery) but architecture and design. Can’t say the same for the fish. Pretty crude effort and less than classy application.
