According to Sheepshead Bites’ Ned Berke:
Phlegm is a Sheffield, UK,-based street artist and illustrator, with work in print and on walls. The creepy characters depicted on the East 28th Street wall are repeated in much of his work.
The murals were organized by Bottleneck Gallery (60 Broadway, Brooklyn), a Williamsburg-gallery that presents art inspired by pop, geek and street culture. The gallery was co-founded by Joe Bouganim, a Sheepshead Bay native and graduate from Leon M. Goldstein High School.
