I think that this mural has to be one of my favorites out of my Buffalo Public Art series so far.

This beauty was created in 2013 by a group of artists under the direction of Ian DeBeer as a tribute to Buffalo-born comic artist Spain Rodriguez.

The actual story behind this mural is definitely interesting and worth reading about.  It was inspired by a Spain Rodriguez comic about a fight he got into at Nietzsche’s, which is across the street from the mural.  You can find a lot more information on this piece by clicking HERE!
