This wall tucked away in a nook by the Post Office in Secaucus, NJ was the perfect fit for clean lines and simple design. Rubin415 played off of the look of the raw concrete surroundings creating a monochromatic mural that works with the classic signage and brickwork, bringing an elegantly retro feel to the space. The concept was to transform the space with a night scene set within a large circular piece which acts as a juxtaposition of a moon and a city scape. Along the bottom is a horizontal bar featuring the town colors.

This building was quite a doozy but Rubin415 impeccably designed and painted the whole facade of it, perfectly cutting lines and circles throughout for the most visually appealing result. Mashing up various combinations of color blocking that he had painted during the past year this wall is literally a culmination of all of his concepts, architecturally working and playing off of each window, door and angle that the building had to offer. To add to the character of Rubin’s wall we had a little help from some friends…  guest appearances by Joe Iurato – the super clean stencils popping out from behind Rubin’s blocking, also utilizing the architecture of the building wonderfully – and Sean 9 Lugo – the wheatpastes in the boarded windows, one a memorial to the property owners dog who passed away and the other a signature Sean 9 Lugo bear head.
