A up to date mural undertaking from Massachusetts-born, San Francisco-based artist Jason Jägel (prior to now featured right here). Painted at the 8 boarded-up home windows of the previous Carl’s Jr on Marketplace St at U.N. Plaza in San Francisco, the undertaking used to be arranged by means of Juan-Carlos Cancino, undertaking supervisor within the Mayor’s place of business. As he shared with us:
“At Juan-Carlos’ recommendation I partnered with the close by 826 Valencia Tenderloin Heart, a non-profit devoted to supporting under-served scholars ages six to eighteen with their inventive and expository writing talents. My mural designs have been impressed from my revel in absorbing the writing of 826 scholars, thru print and by the use of 826 Valencia’s Soundcloud podcast. At once inside the work of art I quoted scholars’ writing, intermingling textual content and symbol. The younger authors’ snippets run the gamut from humorous or bizarre to profound and emotional; all are empowering.”
Somewhat than just translating the textual content to symbol, Jägel works in summary connections and moments that foster audience’ imaginations, developing one thing surprising. See extra pictures under!
