World-famous Brazilian street artist Eduardo Kobra recently finished up a massive, colorful mural in his signature style, on the corner of East 49th Street and 3rd Avenue in Midtown Manhattan. Completed just in time for the 17th anniversary of 9/11, the mural depicts a kneeling firefighter against a backdrop of the twin towers in an American-flag-esque style, a tribute to the heroes of those dark days.

Today @kobrastreetart is starting on another massive new NYC wall, in Midtown East.
