Legendary graffiti writer Lee Quinones recreated his famous The Lion’s Den handball wall mural at the Beyond The Streets festival in Los Angeles, California. Quinones first painted the piece in 1980 at the Corlears Junior High School 56 in New York City. The artwork harks back to the heyday of graffiti, paying homage to the subculture’s originators especially the late-70s subway art movement.
