Here a photo from the same mural that recently Brenda (worldcitizen) have posted a photo named Burst of colors.
I didn't know the paint was made by a brazilian artworker, Eduardo Kobra, thanks Brenda for that info.
Here more abour his life and work:
Eduardo Kobra is an exponent of Sao Paulo’s neovanguard. His talent emerges around 1987, on the outskirts of Sao Paulo, and soon spread and the city. Following the developments that urban art gained in Sao Paulo, he converged – with Studio Kobra, created in the decade of 1990 – to an original mural painting, taking advantage of his characteristics as an experimenter artist, good designer and skilled realistic painter. In this way he develops the project “Walls of Memory”, which goal is to transform the urban landscape through art and bring back the memories of the city.

Nice job capturing this mural! You chose a tighter crop that really lets the colors jump out. I like that we can see some of the bricks underneath the paint. I wish you and Carolina a very Merry Christmas! I also wish you good luck on the birth of your son. He will be the best Christmas present. :-)

Eye catching mural representing the famous photograph when the end of WW II was announced. The radiating rainbow of multiple colors enhance the original sailor and nurse kissing.
There is a large statue of this couple meandering around the U.S. I saw it several years ago at Sarasota, Florida.
Best wishes for the Holidays,

hi andre. this is obviously a favourited hidden corner of NYC, in fact i have now doubts about its being hidden, this is the third version i am writing on TE in a single year :) however, it doesn't stop me from admiring its beauty and attraction. and yours is unique for being the one zooming in the most. now we admire the mural in its full beauty.

Sorry to be late with my comment! I love the mural you've found. What no-one has explicitly identified is the original photograph: it's of course "V-J Day in Times Square", a photograph by Alfred Eisenstaedt. Eisenstaedt said: "People tell me that when I am in heaven they will remember this picture." I guess he was right!
