Is that a severed rat with two of Zed’s porcelain looking characters inside? The Italian artist is currently in New York where he just painted this piece on two separated walls. Wonder how the neighbors feel about this imagery?

Zed1 did an excellent job incorporating the façade of this building (most notably the window) into his newest piece in Amsterdam, Holland. Painted on brick, the artist created the image of a wealthy hand using chopsticks to grab the modest houseboat with its occupant. Could it be Possible Zed1 is commenting on current housing costs and condition or the divide of classes in our current society? Probably a lot of things are being questioned here in this beautiful mural.
