This year, some of NYC’s top street artists were invited by New York businessman Larry Silverstein to create huge canvases and sculptures on the 69th floor of 4 World Trade Center, one of the most expensive pieces of real estate in New York City. The artists aren’t paid and don’t get to keep or sell their work– it’s also closed to the public. They do it because it offers them a free blank canvas.
VICE News gets a look at the private space, and meets Silverstein and some of the artists to better understand the unconventional relationship between artists and real estate mogul.
