Tribute to Robin Williams (Meres One via Instagram)
Graffiti artists and former curator of the now gone Queens graffiti landmark 5 Pointz Meres One, collaborated with fellow graffiti artist SeeTF to paint this tribute to Robin Williams in Brooklyn. The actor, famous for his roles in Aladdin, Dead Poet’s Society, Good Will Hunting, The Fisher King, Good Morning Vietnam and more, passed away early Monday. The outpouring was immediate on social media, as fellow actors and fans expressed remorse over the passing of a comedian who made us laugh on television, and on film, for over thirty years.
The quote on the street art piece comes from Williams’ character on Dead Poet’s Society: “No matter what people tell you, words and ideas can change the world.”
We expect more tributes to start popping up around the city and around the world. We will update them as they go up.
