Designer Department store, Century 21, just got a really cool and heartwarming New York-themed makeover, which honors our fair city’s beauty and remembers 9/11. Internationally famous street artist, Mr. Brainwash, painted his second interpretation of the latter (he painted a similar mural last year) on a 65-square-foot by 225-square-foot wall (a.k.a. the Century 21 storefront), depicting painted images of iconic NYC sights and sceneries.
The focal point, however, is a wide-spreading hasghtag, #NYCISBEAUTIFUL. And, damn, we think this mural is the best one yet. Mr. Brainwash told Century 21, “This isn’t just about New York; when 9/11 happened the whole world was watching. We wanted to do something that is a representation of the city’s resilience, diverse beauty and the strength of the community that shows we won’t forget and remind us to give love on this day and every day.”
Head to Century 21 on Cortlandt St to check out the mural (and do a little shopping) for yourself.
