According to the artist via Instagram, the piece was installed only after the café's owner affirmed his right to paint over it. But, fnnch said, "I'm hoping that if a few people say kind words, he'll let it stay for a long time."
The lips join last year's Cole Valley honey bear (on Stanyan at Alma), pictured below.
And for those who haven't yet seen it, the lips join this spring's installation of music-and bicycle-loving honey bears on a garage door at 1171 Oak St.
In other fnnch-related news, SF Art Hunt this Saturday in the Mission is a free six-hour hunt for all honey bears and their fnnch-created companions in the Mission. The first 100 people to find them all (and post them online) win a special, limited-edition surprise.
