Spray paint on wall ( 18m high / 25m large )
East New York, Brooklyn.
Many thanks to ARTs East New York, especially Catherine MBali Green, Carlos, James, and Nick, for inviting me to share my art with the East New York community. I had good times here, meeting people, having deep discussions, and bring positivity and energy to the people living here.
I worked hard for five days on this mural. It represents a flow of elements and shapes moving in a direction, and a butterfly going on the opposite side. My idea was to suggest actions that people can do, struggling and fighting for a cause.
I included a feather to say that our future has yet to be written. The garden where this mural is painted is called « success garden » so my intention made sense to me.
Hopefully you’ll enjoy my painting as well as the people in the community.
Thank you East New York, you were good to me !
Last but not least, I would like to say thank you to my man Jason Minnis and his wife Sonya Minnis for all the help, the love, the hospitality and all knowledge of their neighboorhood they gave me.
Also thanks to Julien Mourlon who made the connection with Jason a few years ago !
Real friends !
