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.
