The mural for Jerome Gonzalez in Somerville, NJ is finally done! This mural was inspired my my late friend and is composed of many different motivational phrases he shared on social media in the weeks before his passing. He was always such a positive guy and very focused and driven on helping other achieve their best. He was a long time resident of Somerville, NJ and very active in helping establish an arts program within the town. For those reasons and more, we were given an opportunity to honor him through this mural right in the heart of downtown Somerville.
I gotta give a lot of shout outs on this one…my partner on this project Leon Rainbow, the folks at Phoenix Cafe for the awesome canvas, Gallery on Main and Arts on Division for all their support, everyone who assisted on the artwork, everyone who helped raise funds and to all of Jerome’s family and friends for hanging out and sharing memories of a great dude. #cuzomural
I recently went back to the wall to take care of some much needed touch ups. The wall has taken a beating the last two years and was chipping away quite a bit, so I took this opportunity to not only make sure that the mural helps Jerome’s words live on, but also created a video to help do the same. Check it out!
