Jersey City is now home to the latest installment in a series of portrait murals by world-renowned street artist Eduardo Kobra. Measuring 180 feet tall which is Kobra’s tallest to date. Kobra’s project took about two weeks to complete and is part of the Jersey City Mural Art Program. This tall and colorful mural depicts pop icon David Bowie. Why Bowie? Many of Eduardo’s murals are historical figures that represent peace and acceptance. He’s painted similar murals of Gandhi, Abraham Lincoln, Bob Dylan, Nelson Mandela, and John Lennon, all utilizing bright colors and bold lines. An ongoing theme in his work is respect for cultural differences and love for others. Bowie is a shining example of this philosophy. The Brazilian artist is recently credited for creating the “largest spray paint mural by a team” by the Guinness Book of World Records for his Olympic Games-inspired piece “Ethnicities.”
Blanketing the side of Cast Iron Lofts, at 837 Jersey Avenue, this new mural is unmistakable to the thousands of people who pass through Jersey City on the way to Hoboken and Manhattan daily. It stands as a beacon to Jersey City’s burgeoning art and culture scene.
Two major articles referencing Jersey City’s recent building boom posted this past week. A quote from a NY Time’s article notes “As it’s population soars, new housing rises and buyers get wind of the quick train commute it offers to New York, Jersey City is shedding its dingy image and emerging as a destination of choice.” Jersey City offers a creative, affordable, city like environment w/ easy transportation in all directions. The city is pro local business which adds a close community vibe, and attracts a wide variety of age groups. Starting downtown, development has quickly started spreading towards the heights.
