New York City is paying respect to the late Mac Miller in the best way we know how, through sentimental street art.
A young artist lost way too soon, tributes to Mac Miller have been seen across the country since he passed in September; but New York artists BKFoxx and JMZ Walls are honoring him right here in NYC with a touching two-tone mural. The red-and-blue hypperrealistic mural titled “Filters” was completed at the end of January, and can be seen at 1065 Broadway in Brooklyn.
The image chosen for the Pittsburgh rapper—who would have been 27 on January 19—was pulled from his 2015 cover interview with GQ. Artist BKFoxx told Complex that this mural “is meant to be a representation of how we are complex and can be more than one thing at the same time. We can show one face to the world while hiding another. Something I find helpful to be aware of when thinking about other people.”
If you get the chance, be sure to make it out to Bushwick to see the memorable piece in person.
