|Drivers in Miami today were likely doing double takes on Wednesday as they passed what looked like a banker hanging by a noose from a telephone wire alongside a Florida highway.
To accompany his Occupy Wall Street-themed mural, the international graffiti artist known by his street name Above, took his message a step further by adding the rather life-like hanging dummy to his display…
‘I tried to clothe him and dress him up as if he was what I imiagined (sic) a Wall Street banker might wear,’ Above said to MailOnline…I think it’s my retaliation to how far Wall St, has gotten in general.
‘It is shocking to me when I look at these numbers when I see that one per cent of the people have all of the money,’ he continued.
The mannequin was hung next to a mural that he painted along the northbound side of the I-95 highway which stretches from Miami up the east coast.
Making it’s connection to the Occupy Wall Street protests, the mural reads ‘Give a Wall St banker enough rope and he will hang himself’.
