For this mural Ekundayo was inspired by his love for nature, tying in elements of the Meadowlands marshes that cut through Secaucus and the animal species that call it home. Afloat in the marshlands he depicted a harmonious image of man and nature as one - cohabitation as it should be, not intrusion. Featuring a Peregrine Falcon, here shown as one with man, they both enjoy the beauty and bounties of the marshes surrounded by a Monarch Butterfly, Box Turtle, Semi-Spotted Plover, Channel Catfish and Egret, with flowers dispersed throughout bringing it all together and also giving a nod to the towns early history as an agricultural community.
In collaboration with Mayor Michael Gonnelli and the Town of Secaucus.
Raw emotion catalyzes the creative process of Ekundayo. It’s a stunning piece saturated with layers upon layers of color, that takes us through the spiritual journey of finding your way home, which incorporates his signature house structures alongside man and nature as one, as seen with this octopus human hybrid.
For your viewing pleasure here’s a video made by Serringe from Element Tree of Ekundayo in action.
