Japanese graffiti artist adds Fukushima disaster to famous A-bomb muralS

One of the most famous pieces of art in Tokyo is "Myth of Tomorrow," a mural by Picasso-influenced artist Taro Okamoto, depicting the horrors of the atomic bomb. Over the weekend, someone added a new panel to the mural.

The new addition depicts the towers of Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant melting down. And whoever did it, they managed to copy the style of the original mural pretty closely. The new panel was on display for a few hours, before the police took it down — it caused no damage to the original mural, just added to it.
