A gem among ruins

Until further notice…..Money, how sweet the taste, to salt for those who lack it, and bittersweet to those who have too much

This painting is in a place which you would least expect. Located on the upper floor of a decrepit building which is at its last stage of standing. Within the filth, the painting exhibits an American bald eagle cruising in flight over a panoramic backdrop of a sky, terrain and sea. It measures over 5×3 feet in size and is one of two pitted and marked painted murals soon to be destroyed by the elements of decay. Yet, the work stands for a freedom from the reins of man, to a place far and beyond his shores. Free in his fulfillment and deed. To a better future and life his can call his own.

This mural has been destroyed.

Dear reader please note:

thebookmann project began in 2004, and focused on documenting wall paintings, architecture, posters, typography, street graffiti and other kitsch based works in the environment that generally went unnoticed, but thrived in plain sight. thebookmann has become the source of Art pertaining to Trinidad and Tobago and has been approached by artists, curators, museums and universities. This means a comprehensive overhaul is required to insure the consistency and fees retained for its academic use. Until further notice, thebookmann is temporarily closed until financial support can be secured.
