Argentinian-Spanish artist, Felipe Pantone, is making his Jersey City debut in the biggest way possible. Pantone was commissioned by the Jersey City Mural Arts Program to create an art installation that spans over 25 floors of the new Journal Square Urby building, which is set to open later this summer.

The nearly 46,000-square-foot mural is the largest mural Pantone has worked on. It’s part of his “Optichromie” series, which symbolizes transformation and digital revolution with bright and geometric patterns. Not only does Pantone’s mural dominate the Journal Square skyline, but it also changes in relation to the viewer’s proximity to the artwork. To create this effect, Pantone works with various computer programs and then translates them into murals and paintings.

The Jersey City Mural Arts Program is a community-driven initiative aimed at enhancing the city’s public spaces with vibrant, meaningful murals. It involves collaboration between local artists, residents, and businesses to create murals that reflect the cultural diversity and spirit of Jersey City.
