In just 60 hours, artist Jeremy M. Raymer transformed a graffiti-covered Lawrenceville wall into a hulking mural of comic book character Magneto, a piece that has quickly become the most popular he’s ever done. Magneto’s face, complete with gritted teeth, covers the wall at AAA Scrap Metals, and his outstretched arms reach across the scrap yard’s metal fence. Completed just a week ago, it’s already Raymer's most-shared and most-liked work, and you've got to see it to believe it (and to 'gram it, of course). The artist talked to The Incline about the massive mural.

Here's where to eat this month and what to expect this fall. Want food news delivered straight to your inbox? Add your email address and click "follow this."
