Video: Above Miami - Give A Wall St Banker Enough Rope and He Will Hang Himself

This article was posted by Admin 2 years, 10 months, 4 weeks, 1 day, 7 hours, 51 minutes ago.

For the past week, graffiti artist Above has been working on a giant, attention-grabbing mural as part of Primary Flight and in anticipation of Art Basel Miami next month. Above painted this 255-ft wide by 11-ft tall statement along Interstate 95 near the Wynwood Arts District that reads “Give a Wall Street banker enough rope and he will hang himself” with what appears to be mannequin dressed up to look like a Wall St. fat cat hanging overhead.

This controversial piece has solicited response from CBS News, Fox News, and the Miami Times. This attention couldn’t have come at a better time as the first monograph on Above just dropped a week ago from Zero+ publishing. If you haven’t seen it yet, check out 12ozProphet’s review of Above: Passport and scroll down to see a few still images of the new mural in Miami. {image-3} {image-2} {image-1} Photo: Above
