Mural Collaboration with Shazm8
aka. Jennifer Brady
It's a bold painted mural which incorporated text and graphic forms in a lo-fi grunge aesthetic, mimicking each artists' practices. The work takes a reflective lens to the experience of attending art school. The mural engages in a dialogue with the surrounding environment and those who occupy the campus.

The mural takes a comical approach to portraying everyday dialogue, as well as employing satirical cartoon-like visuals as a means of formulating a light-hearted critique.
Shazm8’s stream of consciousness, text-based art-making approach, coupled with JAH’s graphic, figurative drawings, developed a series of visuals which acted as translation of social interaction.
