I don’t pretend to be an authority on the subject, but I’d guess that there’s no modern-era film more closely associated with the locale of Coney Island, Brooklyn than Walter Hill’s 1979 adventure/ drama, The Warriors. If you haven’t seen the film, I recommend it. Two thumbs up! My point being that it’s completely appropriate that this year’s Coney Art Walls installation includes an underwater-themed, mermaid fantasy mural by British street art collective, The London Police that includes an homage to this now classic, cinematic favorite.
At the mural’s very top, you will recognize the likenesses of six of the film’s main characters. Above are the three Warriors on the left side of the wall.
And here are the three Warriors seen on the wall’s right side. Can you dig it?
