Lee Quiñones and Eduardo Galeano, Century of the Wind, Silkscreen Print, from Your House Is Mine, 1990

Lee Quiñones and Eduardo Galeano, “Century of the Wind,” 1990, silkscreen print, 20″ x 23″. Available signed or unsigned.

Lee Quiñones was one of the first graffiti artists to make the transition from spray-painting subway trains to selling works on canvas. His pieces have entered the collections of the Whitney Museum of Art, the Museum of the City of New York, the Groninger Museum, and the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen (Rotterdam).

Eduardo Galeano (1940–2015) was a Uruguayan author of fiction, poetry, and history. This print adapts several passages about New York City from Memory of Fire, Galeano’s three-volume radical history of the Americas.

The paragraph at the bottom of the print, written by Quiñones, alludes to several recent local news stories: the trial of Larry Davis, the marriage and business scandals of Donald Trump, and the faux-cheery window decals installed in blighted neighborhoods by mayor Ed Koch.
