No Saints No Sinners

This portrait was painted on an exterior wall of an apartment building on the northwest corner of Houston Street and Avenue B. The same wall also featured commemorative portraits of Celia Cruz and Pope John Paul II. Unlike the other portraits, this one attracted a fair amount of negative commentary from graffiti artists. The graffiti in small print reads: "we spent years of toil to break from the tyranny of british rule"
