Tats Cru Jeremy Lin Mural

By - Wednesday, February 29th, 2012

{image-1} The folks at Animal New York have called on the TATS Cru to paint a mural of New York Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin. As Linsanity continues to sweep across the nation and he bears the weight of the Knicks hopes for a post-season, the mural depicts him as the Titan Atlas of Greek Mythology. Animal shot a time lapse video of the mural being painted, posted below, and posted the following statement: “In a few short weeks, the media has made Jeremy Lin out to be larger than life: a titan, a hero, a simple point guard tasked with carrying the Knicks franchise–and quite possibly the NBA and NYC as well. In honor of this newfound responsibility–and crushing pressure–ANIMAL commissioned TATS Cru to paint an Atlas-inspired tribute to the man of the hour. Also, we knew it would get press. The mural is located on 2nd Street at Avenue A and will remain for at least a month, which is hopefully much less time than Jeremy Lin will be able to shoulder the weight of New York’s hopes.” -Animal New York Text: Enrique Source: Animal New York
