King Saladeen levels up, unveils lates color way of JP the Money Bear.
The abstract street artist isn’t messing around when it comes to his craft— The West Philly creative has climbed the ladder to artistic success and now with his latest design of “JP,” there’s no doubt the king is up to something.
It was Saladeen’s late childhood friend JP, who saw his “Money Bear” logo painted on a t-shirt and pushed him to pursue what he was designed to do. Painting portraits were never the same for the abstract artist after his best friend passed away because he now had heavenly assistance.
In response to the many forms the “Money Bear” has taken on, Saladeen said,
“THE INSPIRATION BEHIND THE “MONEY BEAR” WAS MY BEST FRIEND WHO PASSED AWAY FROM CANCER [JP]. HE WAS ALREADY ON A LEVEL UP MINDSET. SO, I THINK ALL OF THIS IS COMING INTO PLAY FROM A HEAVENLY MINDSET…”
(In an interview he told KultureHub.)
