Jerome Ave and Buchannan Ave, Bronx NY
Royal “KingBee,” a graffiti artist raised in the Bronx, takes a break from painting a large-scale mural near Jerome Avenue and Buchannan Avenue. He’s been a graffiti artist since 1988 and has painted dozens of storefronts along Jerome Avenue.
“What I like about Jerome…when I drive down Jerome and I love when it’s all closed. All the gates are closed all the shudders, and you can see all the countless numbers of colors, you know…the colors. Of course you realizes it’s the bees. You see one here, next you see two more.”
