STREET ART

HONORING J POD – EDMONDS, WA

Edmonds, Washington: Street Art – “A Mother’s Love” was inspired by and in honor of the mother and her calf from J pod. In many different species, we see a strong bond and love between a mother and her child. We were reminded of that love in the story of the Mother Orca know as Tahlequah from J pod. She carried her calf for 17 days after she died shortly after birth.

  • Features two orcas, a mother, and her calf
  • Different patterns and shapes run throughout the mural
  • Powerful moving forward energy
  • Distinct Pacific Northwest feel
  • 900 Sq ft
  • Aerosol and latex paint

If you would like to see the mural in person, the location is 100 5th Ave N, on the side of Sound Styles in downtown Edmonds, Washington.

‘A Mother’s Love’ — newest Edmonds mural — memorializes Orca mother and calf

A mix of more than 30 artists, citizens and local officials joined the board of Mural Project Edmonds (MPE) on Friday afternoon for a gala ribbon-cutting/dedication ceremony for “A Mother’s Love,” the newest mural to grace Edmonds’ downtown core.

“My inspiration came from the saga of the J-pod mother Orca who mourned for weeks over the death of her calf,” said artist Jake Wagoner. “The story was breaking just as I was in the early planning phase of this project. It touched me and so many people in our community so deeply. I was moved to express this in my art, and the result is this mural dedicated to that J-pod mother and her baby.”

Edmonds, Washington — He’s the guy in a ball cap, armed with 70 cans of spray paint and a mind-blowing imagination.

Not exactly what people expect to see in broad daylight on the streets of Edmonds.

Muralist, Jake Wagoner’s graffiti-style performance is the first installation of Mural Project Edmonds, a public effort by Art Walk Edmonds. The mural, started last week, is on the south-facing Main Street wall of Sound Styles at the corner of 5th Avenue N.

“I feel artwork should have meaning,” said Wagoner. “On top of being beautiful, it should inspire the people that see it. Be it by merely brightening their day, young artists wanting to get better and do bigger things, or having a deeper meaning that would help change the world.”
