Sprocket Mural Works’ 50th mural in Harrisburg celebrates multiple themes—the love between pets and their adopters, and Harrisburg’s diversity during Hispanic Heritage Month. In support of the Human Society of the Harrisburg Area, Justin Suarez of Rochester, NY was selected to create the mural. Justin’s portfolio is full of wildlife and nature-themed murals depicted in vibrant color.
“To me, the way to convey the mission of the Humane Society is to show an adopted pet with its owner, to illustrate that special relationship,” said Justin Suarez. “When people see the mural, it’s my hope that they’re able to perceive the feeling and emotion captured in the image.”
Justin Suarez, a native of upstate New York, is a seasoned aerosol and fine artist renowned for his expansive spray-painted murals celebrating wildlife.
