“Know Hope’s original composition depicted his character struggling with a wave of ‘blue’ pushing back against this wave,” wrote Keith Schweitzer, the director of public art at Fourth Arts Block, in an e-mail. “Phlegm’s painted character is giving Know Hope’s painted character a little help holding off this approaching blue wave.”
