Monday Mural

I'm linking up at Monday Mural hosted by Oakland Daily Photo.

October 2016 - Minneapolis MN

Two murals on the same building.


Found the following here.
A new Prince mural on the side of a building in Uptown was painted this weekend as “a nice present to the city of Minneapolis,” says Bloomington-based artist Rock “Cyfi” Martinez.

“I just thought about the different songs, the color palette, keeping it purple — obviously — and then the doves,” says Martinez, who first conceived the mural as a get-well message when Prince fell ill last week. “I did the symbol instead of his name” to acknowledge Prince’s battle for control of his music, says Martinez.

The mural, just over a story high, is located at 26th Street and Hennepin Avenue — on the back of the building housing Sencha Tea among other businesses. Martinez regularly paints a rotating mural on the 26th Street side of the building; that wall currently features an illustration of a bird and the word “Uptown.”
