We are proud to share Mojo’s latest mural design “UP 2 U.S“ as a limited release. Mojo decided to only release 46 prints. “The number 46 symbolizes our collective desire for a new beginning and represents the year in American History where we, as a society, became aware and determined to strive for a better future for our Country.”

About the Artist:
A couple of sentences about your art piece.
"Up 2 Us" is an exhibition of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I've Been to the MountainTop" speech. As we stand on the shoulders of our American ancestors who declared their humanity with the right to vote, it's our duty to use our voices and ballots to unite and walk side by side into our Peace Filled Promised Land.
A couple of sentences about what this project means to you
The "When We All Vote" project means a lot to me. Growing up in St. Louis, MO, I remember my grandmother, faithfully, driving to the poll and exercising her right to vote. From local elections to U.S. Presidents, you name it. She was there. She told me, "You have a voice so don't be shy to use it." As I humbly accept my invitation to utilize my artistic voice for the good of the people, I promise to create a piece of art that inspires free speech, hope, love and unity.
