As much as we love to work with artists from other sides of the ocean it’s always important to support local artists as they are the most relevant to our neighborhoods in creating our distinct art culture. With that being said here’s another addition to the streets of Jersey City, NJ continuing our Savage Habbit murals project done by none other than LNY. Inspired by a quote from Adam Smith’s The Wealth of Nations (1776) “all for ourselves, and nothing for other people, seems, in every age of the world, to have been the vile maxim of the masters of mankind,” LNY created a masterful piece taking a more traditional painterly approach to the wall. Using only a brush in hand he hints at our fallen government in the bigger scheme of things and at local political drama, i.e. Lady Liberty’s flame at the end of the crown for a more direct reference to our area and lack of “America the free.” Be sure to check out our Flickr for all the progress and detail shots of this stunning addition to the streets and check back soon for a nice little progress video.

"LA VIRGEN DE LA DISCORDIA"
Wall in Santurce, Puerto Rico.
This is a piece from Edward von Lõngus, entitled „Respectful businessman“ on the wall surrounding the Estonian Government building, in a viewing area overlooking Tallinn, the capital of Estonia. It is a reference to how quickly the communist ideologists turned big businessmen after the fall of the Soviet regime.
