Angry Hulk in the Pit
Queens, NY 2003
In this large scale graffiti mural we see Hulk, the green comic book hero, representing an outraged American population. While the American flag he holds leaves no doubt about his patriotism, our angry hero is shown alone, walking through a landscape of ruins and devastation. This overall environment of sadness and tragedy sets up a complex counterpoint with the notion of “united we stand” and the commonly triumphant appearance of super heroes in WTC memorials. The virtuosity with which graffiti tags and WTC remains are intertwined here is also worth noting.
