FIELD NOTES: We are head over heels for this piece! We love the contrast between the perfectly detailed dragon eye, including the reflected cityscape, and the stylized painting around it. We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again—the artistic skill that goes into graffiti is absolutely incredible. It feels like work of this calibre should be tucked away in a distant gallery or an art collector’s private collection, but instead it is in Graffiti Alley where anyone and everyone can enjoy it freely. Plus, you can never go wrong with dragons.
