Our mural was created by Chicago-based artist/muralist Asend. With influences rooted in 90’s Chicago graffiti as well as the Baroque paint stylings of 17th century Europe, Asend brings the color and composition of oil paintings to the large scale art of murals.
Our Green Rose Mural depicts a faceless woman wearing an elegant blouse, as she delicately holds out a beautiful long-stemmed green rose with visible thorns. The elegance of the blouse and the beauty of the rose are meant to symbolize the cannabis plant. While the rose’s thorns and faceless woman represent the decades of prohibition and injustice the cannabis plant, and community have weathered. Through this injustice the rose is made to represent the resiliency of those communities hurt by unjust cannabis laws.
