“A Piece of Pie” was inspired by my Strolls through the Hood in Jersey City, and specifically an abandoned warehouse building in my hood.
The building looks like a piece of pie when you look at the satellite view. The history of this building is unbeknownst to me, although real estate records indicate that it is sold every few years for not too much money. Someone gets a piece of gentrification pie when that happens.
I used spray paint, acrylic paint, gouache, collage, and markers on the 10×10” canvas.
The building is for sure an interesting landmark and I really would love to know more about the history of this building. It would make an amazing art and community center as well.
“A Piece of Pie” is available in my store and I would love to give this painting a new home.
