Seit 2013 lässt Steven Fulop, Bürgermeister von New Jersey, die Stadt mit großformatiger Kunst gestalten. Das aktuelle David Bowie Mural von Eduard Kobra ist bereits das 86. Motiv dieser Initiative.
Bowie’s creativity and vision had always inspired me. I’d actually painted this portrait six years ago on a canvas, and I was delighted to have the opportunity to paint it here in Jersey City on such a tall building. It is my way of keeping his memory alive among people who embrace him.
