Graffiti Mecca

August 14, 2012

In Long Island City there is a building covered with graffiti called 5 Pointz. This building is considered to be a “graffiti Mecca,” where artists from all over the world have come to paint colorful pieces all over the walls of this factory.

The building evokes a time in the 80s when graffiti covered New York but, unlike that time that has disappeared, this building is a living collage which has continuously changed and evolved.
