The outline of an androgynous profile combines with a stenciled pictogram that reads “lips ‘R’ razorblade.” The lips are shaped like a broken heart to symbolize broken love. In street slang, “razorblade” is defined as causing physical pain. We can deduce that through this art the graffiti artist tells us that broken love hurts. (Captured on 35mm Tri-X film, New York, NY, December 1983)
