Black and White CHAZ portrait
Capital Hill Autonomous Zone, Seattle, Washington, USA
A mural featuring a black and white portrait of a woman is surrounded by multi colored graffiti. The mural appears to cover existing graffiti, some of which reads “abolish SPD.” Behind the portrait, a pale blue wash emanates around her head, eventually fading to orange and yellow on the right and left corners. Near the left corner of the portrait a poster featuring George Floyd is pasted. The surrounding graffiti, left to right, top to bottom reads: “oink, oink,” “BLM,” “black lives matter,” “CHAZ,” a broken heart, “fuck 12,” “fuck you SPD,” “BLM,” 3 raised fists, and “fuck 12.” Some additional graffiti is illegible. Though it is not titled or labeled, it is likely this is a portrait of Breonna Taylor.
