if not mistaken

this is a hip hop " artist" his name is j-z he is famous hip hop artist in the state and i think its part of the urban movement, i really dont know the context of this art on the wall, only think i could think about is that the person who did it likes j-z and likes to immitate that urban movement, hes a sucky rapper by the way but what do i know i dont like rap

I heard it was done by a Spanish artist

Jay-Z doesn't appear to wear suits that often. The story I heard was that it was commissioned by German Pomares' son. It's looking up at the FSLN headquarters which may or may not be a statement.

I think Pocoyo got it dead right.

Add the word Cigar after his name, there are a couple at least that this image could have been was copied from.

And he wears suits a lot.

What would it mean if it was on a wall in downtown Moscow?...Nothing, other that he has an International fan base.

I am sure that by asking around, or just stand there and admire it one day, you could find out enough to add to the story.

Um, I'll have to see

...what I come up with by asking around. Whoever owns the building it's on obviously has no problems with it.

I did find the other photograph of the dove and will post that to show how really sick it looked.
