Ken Cox, a tattoo artist out of Oak Street Tattoo, was recently commission for an art deco mural. Though different from his normal line of work, Ken jumped at the opportunity and was very excited to honor his city.
The mural is located on Henriette Delille Street right off St. Bernard. He was inspired by 1930-1950s Art Deco style cartoons and decided to use that as the theme for his mural. And of course, inspired by the Jazz lifeblood that runs through this city.
Mayor Cantrell posted this on her Instagram this morning:
Go check out the mural for yourself! New Orleans has some amazing street art all over the French Quarter, Bywater, Midcity, Uptown, and even more places if you’re willing to look for them!
