Location: Graffiti Alley

This piece was created to mark the recent fifteen year anniversary of the 9/11 tragedy when the Twin Towers in NYC were attacked by terrorists and thousands of Americans lost their lives.  In the center of the piece, in between the tags FLIP and KWEEN, are the Twin Towers with a golden halo ontop of them and the hastag “Never Forget” underneath them.  This piece is also done in the colors of the American Flag – red, white, and blue. While graffiti and street art is often joyous and playful, artists also use this bold style of self expression to address all types of political issues and current events, even those that are somber or controversial.
