Preserving Graffiti History

Recommended Posts

I thought it was pretty interesting. I don't know if i'd be better to just replicate the entire car on a wall or... what they're doing. Either way, pretty dope.

 

Cool story br0, right. I get it.

[[Anyone who has been lost in the last few weeks around the southern reaches of the Gowanus Canal in Brooklyn could be excused for experiencing a powerful Koch administration flashback. On the wall of a brick warehouse there, visible from the parking lot of a furniture store, a huge mural unfurls itself, a loving, seemingly spray-by-spray re-creation of one of the more infamous pieces of graffiti ever to ride the subway: a 1980 work by the artist known as Seen that covered the length of a No. 6 train car with the ominous phrase “Hand of Doom.”]]

i am 100% for this, they're using some of the original writers too. If only they were using the original colors!! that'd be crazy.

 

Although I'm not a fan of changing "hand of doom" to "joan of arc" i think that shit's lame...

So why are they changing the names instead of just recreating the piece? They better not fuck with any Skeme pieces and make them say Shakespeare or some shit.
