houseofmeggs My 'Rising Up, Back on the Street' limited edition prints have JUST dropped with @1xrun
Click the link in my profile for the release!!!
Available as both an edition of
40, 18x18" & 25, 36x36" Archival Pigment Prints on 300gsm on Fine Art Paper. "The original painting was created as my homage to the city of Detroit. The Tiger is an iconic symbol for the city and has been used as the symbol and name for the Detroit Tigers baseball team for a century, as one of the oldest running teams in the U.S. For this reason, the Tiger is a symbol that all Detroiters relate to and feel proud ownership of – it is a symbol that’s born from Detroit’s glory days and one that survived its unfortunate downfall. I interpreted this as a constant symbol of hope and strength the city can hang onto, going into a new era of change, and hopefully regrowth.

It is also the basis & inspiration for the 'Rise Up' mural, painted in conclusion to my Detroit residency and at over 6000sq ft is my largest solo mural to date." #meggs #houseofmeggs #riseup #prints #release #1xrun #detroit #tiger #eyeofthetiger #innerstate

  •   mickjags Thanks for gettin down with our city! The Detroit Tigers were named after a military unit stationed in Detroit, known formally as the 'Detroit Light Guard', and informally as 'The Detroit Tigers' or other similar variations. That military unit was infamous in the late 19th century and after, especially during the Civil War and Spanish-American War. So, there is def some traditional pride in that symbol. Thanks for taking notice. Your mural will live on forever ☆ 3w
  •   houseofmeggs @mickjags Yes I did read that, interesting story and oldest single running league name in the US too believe. Legit History. Thanks man! 3w

houseofmeggs At over 600 sq. ft., my 'Rise Up' mural in Eastern Detroit is my biggest solo mural to date!! The amazing city of Detroit welcomed & inspired me, this was my way to give back. The Tiger has been an iconic symbol of the city and past glory for over a century; it is now a symbol of future hope; to 'rise up against great odds'. Thanks again to Josh, Ed, Jordon @inner_state @1xrun for making this possible. Props to homie @teadnasty & @fudweiser @swfreddy on the pieces below!
