‘Dreams’ Still Alive

Graffiti writer, author, and all around aerosol junkie, CHINO, gives some background on this piece that’s been running, miraculously, for almost three decades now:

I first spotted this Dreams piece by Smiz NSA shortly after it was painted in 1982. For the past 27 years the wall has remained protected behind a locked gate in parking lot in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. While passing through the old neighborhood over the weekend I noticed a small hole in the fence just big enough to squeeze through.
