Street artist ASKEW ONE was commissioned to paint the entire basketball court at Marcy Playground in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. The piece is called “Artwork Inspired by The Last O.G. on TBS” referencing the television show from Jordan Peele (of Get Out) starring Tracy Morgan. You can see how the visual inspiration is derived from the cover image of the series, including the pink color palette and the Brooklyn chain necklace. The rest of the artwork references the JMZ subway line.
