Fort Gibraltar Trail underpass (2)   

This 2017 rendering was by Nero Eugenio (Nereo II) and John Nievas Padua for Synonym Art Consultation and Graffiti Arts Programming for the 2017 Wall-to-Wall Festival. In 2019 it was replaced with a new Mural- the logic being that since underpass walls are very susceptible to crumbling, grime and water damage future underpass Murals they produce would have a lifespan of three years and then replaced, thus becoming a revolving gallery and opportunity for other artists.
Original notes follow:===
Inspired by Hindu teachings of transcendence and nonduality, as well as the Native American Legend about the great internal fight between two polar opposite wolves. One wolf representing anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, self-pity resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority and ego while the other wolf being a symbol of joy, love, peace, serenity, humility, kindness, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith. "ADVAITA" is a guided visual meditation through the plane of duality and an invitation to return to the higher self.
