New Mural by Mister Cartoon For Coney Art Walls in New York


Los Angeles muralist and tattoo artist Mister Cartoon painted this contemplative mural while in New York City for Coney Art Walls. The wall addresses modern themes, as a 1920’s style keystone cop is chasing a man wearing a black hoodie, while the Grim Reaper looks down on them. In the other corner, a bikini-clad Angel holds her cell phone and snaps a ‘selfie’, uninterested in the chase below.

Coney Art Walls, curated by Jeffrey Deitch, will feature work by many established graffiti and street artists, including Swoon, How & Nosm, Miss Van and Daze. With more than 25 temporary walls, the installation will remain up in Coney Island, Brooklyn into September, with no announced end date.
