Once5 in Bushwick

We have never heard of South Bronx artist Once5 before this or have we ever seen his work but we do like the piece in this clip put together to promote an upcoming show at My Addiction Gallery in Arizona. The  piece is the clip is called "The Self Immolation of Thic Quang Duc".

"This piece is based on the Buddhist monk who burnt himself alive in protest against the persecution of Buddhists by South Vietnam’s Diem administration. This event is widely considered the turning point for the Vietnamese Buddhist crisis."

Some of the artist work can be purchased from the Curbs and Stoops website.
