ART: Beyond the Streets Presents: LEE Quinones Recreates “The Lion’s Den”
Written by streetsconnect on June 14, 2018
One of the most iconic works in the history of graffiti, influential street pioneer Lee Quinones recreated “The Lion’s Den” handball wall piece on the outside of the Beyond the Streets exhibition in Los Angeles.
Painted on the streets of NYC with a famed documentation by Martha Cooper, the wall symbolizes a particular era of NYC graffiti, and tells the story of not only LEE’s position as one of the originators of graffiti, but the genres connection with urban life.
Lee’s installation is at the entryway of Beyond the Streets, open through July 6, 2018 in Los Angeles.
