Bloom Where You Are Planted Mural in Bloomfield, NJ, Photo by Susan Joy Clark

I saw this mural on an underpass on Broad Street in Bloomfield, New Jersey. I was on foot for a bit, so I took a photo. It impressed me with its vivid colors and beauty. It’s a lot more pleasant than looking at plain concrete. The mural was signed by The Art Alchemist.

From this angle, you can see that the giant flowers are pushing up through concrete in a cityscape.

According to the Art Alchemist’s website, the mural is entitled “Bloom Where You’re Planted” and represents the strength needed to grow wherever you are. It was commissioned by the township of Bloomfield. Not only is it visually pleasing, the mural has a positive message. You can go to The Art Alchemist to see more examples of the artist’s work.
