Meggs Paints Epic 'Rising Up, Back On The Streets" Mural In Detroit

Melbourne born and bred artist David "Meggs" Hooke shows the world what he's made of with this massive mural he painted in Detroit. Last week the weather wasn't promising for the task of painting 60 feet in the air on a boom lift. The winds were high and the rain didn't help either. But Meggs is the kind of artist who pushes through the elements regardless of what he's challenged with. Dozens of murals and graffiti has been splashed across The Motor City in the last few years. But I have a feeling this wall will show the world & especially Detroiters how far graffiti and its players have taken the game. Meggs has an infinite arsenal of talent under his belt from canvases, sculptures, letters and now his biggest painted wall to date. We are proud to have this wall here as much as we are to have Dave in our 1xRun family. Read on below as Meggs breaks down his wall and his latest print release.

ABOUT THIS ART

The framing option for this RUN includes a 1 Inch Black Wood Frame with UV Glass, foam core backing and ready to hang hardware.


"'Rising Up, Back On The Street' was one of the largest featured paintings for the show. It was created as my homage and direct reference to the city of Detroit. The tiger, namesake of the Detroit Tigers baseball team for over a century, is a symbol that Detroiters relate to and feel proud ownership of. It was born from the city's past glory and survived through it's unfortunate losses. The power of a tiger and its relationship with Detroit now represents a continuing symbol of tenacity & hope for a new era of positive change and re-growth.

As soon as I created the piece I knew that when I painted a mural for the city I wanted to use this image and elaborate on it, focusing more on the Tiger and the words Rise Up, emphasizing the energy and momentum of forward motion and self-empowerment. It was my way of giving back to a city that had welcomed me, inspired me and allowed me to take from it to expand my own work & ideals." - Meggs

This RUN comes signed, numbered and with a Certificate of Authenticity from Meggs and 1xRUN.
