It's been some time since I've posted a wall by Jade and I was particularly drawn to this new one he painted in the center of Lima, Peru. The image is simple, a young man stacking bricks upon books, perhaps a reference to how many young people turn to labor and leave school behind, but it is the addition of the "spirit animal" mask that makes me fall in love with it. It is as if Jade is going into himself and bringing out the natural fauna within us all, giving each of us the ability to sit ourselves in this young mans place thanks to his ambiguity. Head on over to Jade's blog here to see some more shots and details of this new wall.
