With a dedication to the late Dash Snow, Os Gemos completed their new mural in New York’s Lower East Side last night. The twins’ memorial borrows a fittingly bittersweet line from the Neil Young classic Powderfinger. “Think Of Me As The One You Never Figured,” reads the inscription, suggesting the song’s final verse:
Shelter me from the powder and the finger
Cover me with the thought that pulled the trigger
Think of me as one you’d never figured
Would fade away so young
With so much left undone
Remember me to my love,
I know I’ll miss her.
TAC extends a heartfelt thanks to Otavio and Gustavo for their beautiful addition to the city and tribute to a lost artist.
Read on for our extensive photo gallery of the completed mural, and check here for our coverage of the early stages.
