Furry and feathered pets in an East Village mural

Graffiti artist Chico paints colorful murals all over Manhattan—including this East Ninth Street homage to some of the cats, dogs, bunnies, and birds of the neighborhood.


It appears outside Whiskers, a holistic pet supply store, and it’s a sweet reminder of the furry and feathered New Yorkers we share the city with.

    Been a huge (and silent) fan of this site
    for ages but had to give you the thumbs up for giving Chico some attention!!! Love his work…they always make me smile, even the tribute walls he’s done over the years to victims of violence…his work is the East Village!!!

    […] This scene comes from the imagination of street muralist Chico, whose work brightens up many facades in the neighborhood. See more of it here. […]
