 Ferizaj, Kosovo, 2019 for  MuralFest Kosovo .  Kosovo is a country that was the center point of a brutal war in the late 90's between the ethnic Albanians and Serbians in which many thousands lost their lives before NATO intervention brought it a close. Years later Kosovo was born, currently in its 11th year of existence. Both the Albanians and Serbians use a double headed eagle in their crests and flags, and by merging the two into one I hoped to create a sort of avian yin-yang that unified the two, while acknowledging both their differences and similarities; not least of which is the land they call home.

Part of the Aesop’s Fables series:

From Take me to the Basement

I've worn that hat for seven years
That's why it's discolored, ragged and shitty
I ain't about to toss it when its been through all these dream wars with me
I'm an undercover prophet, thrift shop garb
I'd rather starve then sit inside this gridlock until it parts
