The Mural, which is located on 11th street and 1st avenue, features Michael’s face split, half as a child and half an adult. The mural was done by famous Brazilian artist Eduardo Kobra, who has painted around 500 murals in over 17 countries around the world.

(Last year Kobra did the awesome David Bowie mural in Jersey City.)
