Stained Glass windows

Created expressly for  the exhibition ‘art in the streets,’ ‘stained window’ was completed with students from the city of angels public school in los angeles. The artist erected panels in their schoolyard and requested that they be tagged for source material: the resulting boards were placed behind a medieval silhouette, rendering what looks like a stained glass window. the iconoclastic kneeling figure in front draws extra light to the conversion of museum to a church as well as the elevation of graffiti to high art.
