On July 1st, Los Angeles’ graffiti artist and muralist Mear One (@MearOne) debuted a print on 1xRUN. Titled “False Prophets,” this controversial, silkscreen drawing was inspired by a 2012 mural that he did in the Shoreditch community in East London (video can be seen below). It is a strong metaphor for the state of the economy and depicts the suffering of global humanity.
About the piece, he said, “I originally titled this piece â€œFreedom For Humanityâ€ and experienced loads of controversy over the subject matter at the time of its creation. The mural, done entirely in spray paint, depicted a group of fat, old, decrepit white men playing a game of Monopoly on the backs of the working class.”
