In the heart of Williamsburg, Brooklyn, lives this painting by Brazilian street artist Kobra. He just wrapped this masterpiece. You can find it on Bedford and North 9th Street.
As you can see, the artist painted images of legendary artists Basquiat and the father of pop-art Warhol. The piece, titled “Fight for Street Art,” creates a powerful message amidst the wide range of kaleidoscopic colors.
This raises a question: Is the street art culture dying in the city of New York? With graffiti meccas such as 5 Pointz coming to an end nearly a year ago, it has concerned the community. We can only hope that one of the primary factors that makes New York culture what it has been for the past 30+ years doesn’t get stripped away.
