A new mural depicting emperor Haile Selassie currently adorns a Queens corner in Laurelton. The artwork titled “Selassie Mountain” is painted along the wall of the Health Conscious Natural Market at 231st Street and Merrick Boulevard. The owner of the store, who also commissioned the artwork, said the sketch stands to be a reminder of a black king. Love said after viewing one of Valentine’s works at another business in Queens, he had to track him down for the project. He says utilizing the wall of his business gives him an opportunity to offer his neighbors a mural that they can be proud of.
