Artist Jeremie “Bacpac” Franko painted a George Floyd mural in Phoenix last year to “start a conversation” about the Minneapolis man’s death in police custody.
But after complaints from residents, and an act of vandalism earlier this year, Franko painted over her mural Friday, according to a report.
The article goes on to state the following:
The mural showed Floyd’s face on a $20 bill and included the title, “#the_price_of_black_lives.”
Several Phoenix residents had complained about the mural. Coronado resident Kelvin West said, “This is a mural designed by White people that celebrates White violence. It creates a space for Black people to continue to be traumatized.”
“The mural came out of nowhere,” West complained. “Not one Black person was involved in the making of this mural, putting it together or designing it. Oak Street is full of beautiful, well-thought-out murals but this mural is an absolute atrocious representation of White violence and an insult to Black excellence.”
Franko, the artist, said she wasn’t trying to stir up controversy, and finally, amid the criticism, she just painted over it on Friday.
