Michael Jackson Mural Appears In New York City
As the entertainment industry gear up in anticipation for the 8th Annual Brooklyn Loves Michael Jackson Block Party on the 25th of August 2018 hosted by Spike Lee, an eye-catching Michael Jackson mural popped up in the East Village area of New York City this week.
Located on the corner 11th Street and First Avenue, the colorful mural commemorates the King of Pop in a colorful and distinguishable fashion – with the left side depicting Jackson as a child and the right side displaying the “Man in the Mirror” as we knew him best.
Though it has yet to be tagged, the split image is thought to be the work of Brazilian artist Eduardo Kobra and marks his third NYC-based mural since 2012.
With over 500 works scattered across the globe, Kobra use of geometrical patterns, colors, lines, and realism is what sets his work apart from others.
