BUSHWICK — A Bushwick street artist helped his friend propose with a bold mural documented in a series of Instagram posts.
The artist began documenting the elaborate and romantic gesture on Friday, according to social media posts.
He and a buddy primed the wall on the side of Tepeyac Meat Grocery at 191 Knickerbocker Avenue with bright orange paint.
The completed mural read: "Juliette, will you marry me?"
OPTIMO NYC, who didn't respond to a request for comment, has been painting his signature character across the city since 2006, Brooklyn Street Art reported. He also sells his artwork on the streets of Soho.
On Sunday evening, the artist posted a final picture saying that his friend's girlfriend Juliette had accepted his proposal.
Bushwick Daily first reported on the mural proposal.
Editor's Note: An earlier version of this story stated that OPTIMO NYC proposed to his girlfriend, but he actually painted the mural on behalf of a friend.
