Snyder's Rocket Boy - Still Launching Off!
Snyder introduced his Rocket Boy years ago, and the character has since got up all over the world.
Here is Snyder's Rocket Boy blasting off on Melrose, and Snyder has this to say about his classic character:
A full scale Rocket Boy piece was first installed years ago in Oceanside along the highway 78. Rocket Boy launched up the side of a pillar and out from under a bridge where a collection of freehand graffiti tags remained. His surge out form the dark represented the state of street art at that specific time launching out from underground subversive art scene and into the mainstream. This dumpster RB piece represents the same idea.
Dig it. Stay up!
