Hot off the heels of a fantastic trip to Philadelphia, Shepard and his crew traveled next to Jersey City, New Jersey. On the request of Mayor Steven Fulop, Shepard was asked to create a massive mural on the corner of Columbus Avenue and Grove Street as part of the city’s expanding public art efforts. “The Jersey City Wave” adds to the 55 other murals created in the past two years as part of Mayor Fulop’s public art program.

Here’s what Shepard had to say:

“I’ve had friends in Jersey City for many years and there has always been a lot of creative people here but I’m inspired by the surge of creative support and cultural emphasis that seems to be especially vibrant with the new mural program. The mural is designed to symbolize the renaissance and the cultural wave that Jersey City is riding while also acknowledging its waterfront location and the beauty and power of Mother Nature. I’m a huge believer in the power of public art and grateful to Mayor Fulop for supporting my work as well as public art in general.”

COVERT TO OVERT x Subliminal Projects Recap

Last Saturday’s opening of COVERT TO OVERT: The Photography of Obey Giant by Jon Furlong at Subliminal Projects was a great success!

“Last Saturday was the opening for my first solo exhibition at Subliminal Projects. Preparing and finalizing the full show was a pretty difficult task. What photos to show, sizing, printing, framing, installation. On top of that, I had to battle the Dodgers making the playoffs which threw a major curve ball for the opening night. Luckily, everyone stayed positive and the show went on. The exhibition overall had 50 larger photo prints, a salon wall with over 120 photos, two large custom direct printed wood pieces and my favorite – four massive photo prints with Shepard’s hand collaged background which includes stencils, spray paint and handmade papers. This process used by Shepard in his fine art pieces. You really have to see them in person to get the feel, the photos don’t do them justice. Anyways, I wanted to thank everyone who battled the heat, traffic, crowds and made it to my show. It really was a great honor and was unreal feeling. Sorry for those of you who got your car towed!”
– J. Furlong
