This tag is jarring, not so much for its style or boldness or scale, but because of the moniker itself. Given current events in the U.S. and globally, the tag resonates with New Yorkers and, perhaps makes us pause to think, in a way it wouldn’t have several years ago, before the events of 9/11/2005. Which, whether the intention of the writer or not, is the importance and value of art (whether or not you consider Krylon tags art).
