Months ago I was approached by Target to submit a couple of ideas for a mural in a new store they were planning to open in my old neighborhood of Fordham. Just a block away from my last apartment before moving to the Yankee Stadium area.
They liked my ideas and I was chosen to create a painting for the store that was made into a mural. It was a great experience, and not only I was able to create a piece that in my opinion represents The Bronx, but I was also invited to participate in the campaign they launched for the inauguration, with my artwork and in a cool video.
Overall it was an amazing experience and I am very proud of it!
You can visit the store and the mural at 215 East Fordham Road (BX), and don't forget to take pictures and tag me!!
