Take Me Home

This is the result of ongoing collaborations between Jackson Shuri and M.O.A.L in the spirit of community, unity, and making global noise showcasing disdain in the form of social commentary through art and the merging of artistic techniques. Spray painted street art, versus the laborious hand painted organic academic brush strokes beautifully marries demonstrating power created when we work together, for we are stronger together. The contemporary state of humanity as it pertains to the inhumane treatment of marginalized immigrants in the United states and around the world, is of great concern to Jackson and M.O.A.L . M.O.A.L means- (Mind Of A Lunatic). M.O.A.L served for 10 years in the United States army and suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder rendering the artist a lunatic.

M.O.A.L uses art to help us understand that war isn’t pretty! This work demonstrates the need to take a stand- be half man/ be half ape, be wild and unruly when it comes to protecting your civil liberties. M.O.A.L elevates the Gorilla often seen as wild and unruly, to the status of King of the jungle because of its strength and humanoid appearance and connection. You’re looking at a symbol defiance towards the fucked-up policies America once known as the giant of the western world has instituted and the ways in which she tramples the value of minority lives. America you have and has been failing us miserably. In the words of the current idiot in the Whitehouse, lets truly work to make America Great again.

The Ape is place atop and centre the United States Flag abstracted by Jackson Shuri. The rainbow colours crowns the head of the Gorilla reminding us that all the colours make society work! There can be no peace when you start ripping and tearing at the fabrics that covers your backsides. You leave society fragmented and weak when you fail to protect and respect all.
