New Graffiti

This grand wall at 19th and 42nd survived for a long time displaying the graffiti of El Sexto* with its pink criticism and his trademark star all the way to the walls of El Vedado.  Apparently, the pink lacquer he used has been extinguished because last week it was covered up — as you can barely make out in the photographic image.  Now, it is yellow over black and you notice it more than ever.  There’s nothing like censorship to get your attention.

*Translator’s Note:  “El Sexto” is a Cuban graffiti artist.
