Wu-Tang Clan-Inspired Climate Change Mural Unveiled In Staten Island
STATEN ISLAND, NY – Local-area artist Cody Prez has brought a literal storm to Staten Island with his 2,000 sq. ft., Wu-Tang Clan-inspired mural, “Climate Change Ain’t Nuttin To Mess With.”
Taking its name from the Wu-Tang Clan classic, “Wu-Tang Clan Ain’t Nuthing ta Fuck Wit,” Prez initially designed the mural during Hurricane Maria and presented a similar, scaled-down version of the final mural on his Instagram page.
Prez then teamed up with Staten Island Arts and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs to place a large-scale version of the mural on the building of the Richmond Hood Company. Richmond Hood, a Staten Island-based clothing atelier, is located in the famed “Artist Alley” district.
