After several weekends of painting, local artists PAWN and EYESOR have completed their mural behind 172 Newark Ave in downtown Jersey City (in the parking lot on 1st Street between Jersey Ave and Erie Street, just next to the Whale mural in the previous post).
Friends hung out, listened to music, ate lots of pizza and BBQ, and showed their support while the guys painted. Neighbors and shoppers stopped to take photos in front of the wall before it was even finished. It was really great to hear all the positive comments and praise from the folks that were surprised to see wild tigers in the middle of downtown.
The Jersey City Independent ran a story on the mural, complete with artist statements, additional photos, and video from Serringe/Element Tree, which is linked here:
Please comment. I like to know what you think!
I'll also add some photos of the mural during the stages of completion soon!
