Eric Garner memorial / commemoration by Gabriel Specter
Artist Gabriel Specter put up this memorial for Eric Garner in August 2021. Garner was killed by a police officer using a chokehold while being arrested on July 17, 2014 in Staten Island, New York.
For this memorial, Specter created a huge stencil that he hung from above and pinned to the wall. He then used a fire extinguisher to spray the entire stencil with paint. In September 2021 he created another piece with the same technique.
