Video: Graffiti Artist Above Putting Together His Now Famous Hanging Banker
A graffiti artist's effigy of a banker hanging alongside Miami's I-95 has struck a global chord. Since we first reported on the suit-and-tie (and head-covering sack) wearing mannequin that guerrilla artist Above hung to complement his Occupy Miami-themed 255-foot-long mural reading "Give a Wall Street banker enough rope and he will hang himself", it's gone viral.
Today, Above sent us a video showing the making of the piece that has gotten more attention than any Occupy Wall Street-themed artwork. It even shows him picking out the doomed dummy.
By the way, last time we checked earlier this week, the banker was still hanging.
