Rochester’s The Sweetmeat Co. created an art piece depicting female graffiti pioneer LADY PINK as a saint that was based in part on a NYC subway photo taken by Martha Cooper back in 1982. And while she normally doesn’t like when people use her work without her permission, in this case, is more than willing to absolve the artists of her wrath. Compare with the original photograph below.
