5Pointz, considered to be "the world's graffiti mecca," is an outdoor graffiti art exhibit space in Long Island City where local and international aerosol artists create colorful pieces on the walls of a 200,000-suare-foot factory building after securing permit from the curator. The name 5Pointz signifies the five boroughs of New York City coming together as one. With the recent reports that this unique haven for graffiti artists may actually be demolished soon, I revisited this cultural icon yesterday. Here are some of the photos of the artwork showing a diversity of styles, themes and color schemes. More information from the 5Pointz website.
