This graffiti piece has an interesting reference to Las Vegas. The letterforms play off scrapped signs that are stacked in the Neon Boneyard (or where ever signs are left to fade). The painting shows empty bulb and neon sockets, a detail of jettisoned metal. The slot machine holding a cocktail and wearing fashion code of Hip-Hop is dancing among the debris.
