The End…⠀ ⠀ I didn’t think that we could top ourselves so quickly after the first mural but I think this one embodies so much power, angst and the struggle for justice and peace. ⠀ ⠀ Another amazing collaboration with Laurie Clements and Wil Wong Yee⠀ ⠀ @clemente_laurie⠀ @wilwongyee⠀ ⠀ If you’re local to Columbus please go downtown and see what we have poured ourselves into this week. We have really made a huge and artistic impact in the Black Lives Matter movement. ⠀ ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .
