"I'm really excited to do the Prince mural because so much what I do is site-specific. I purposely held off on doing a mural when he passed just because it didn't feel right doing one in LA. When the oppoortunity arose to paint him right in the heart of the North Loop, I was thrilled," Never said in the release.

The mural measures 23.7 feet long and 27 feet tall.
