J Cole Gets Mural in Durham

By: Eris Lowdermilk

Notorious rapper J Cole receives a tribute in his home state of North Carolina. Graffiti artist JEKS paid homage by creating a 40,000 square-foot design of Cole surrounded by a grey and blue clouded sky with his gaze looking down. 

The mural also encompassed a collaboration with popular hip-hop photographer Jonathan Mannion. The artwork was transformed into a life-size mural on UHill Walls in Durham, North Carolina.

 JEKS shared the masterpiece on social media Saturday, September 26 and posted it on Instagram with a heartfelt caption about the work: “Another collaboration with legendary photographer @jonathanmannion of NC hiphop legend @realcoleworld for @uhilwalls in Durham NC. It was such an awesome few days surrounded by 40+ other artists killing it. Huge thanks to @abvagency and Xavier for running a tight ship.”
