Late rapper Mac Miller received a tribute mural in Brooklyn, called 'Filters.' The mural is painted by artist BKFoxx in collaboration with the street art group JMZ Walls. The mural is based on an original photograph by Brick Stowell, and it can be found at 1065 Broadway in Brooklyn.
Speaking to Complex, BKFoxx said:"I think Mac Miller’s death had been kind of overlooked. It was such a shitty thing, he was only 26. And when someone ODs, it hurts, because in my generation, there's been so much of it, we're so used to burying friends and family members for that reason. And because I think to myself, how bad is living in this world for you that you just can't? Especially as an artist—I can say from experience it's really difficult to be creative in a society that values money and trends more than culture and real individuality. [The piece] is meant to be a representation of how we are complex and can be more than one thing at the same time. We can show one face to the world while hiding another. Something I find helpful to be aware of when thinking about other people."
