Mural outside NE Portland coffee shop pays tribute to Prince

Posted: Updated:

A Prince tribute has popped up in northeast Portland.

The mural is located behind Motivasi Coffee off Northeast 42nd Avenue and Prescott.

The coffee shop's owner said an artist named Ashley Montague painted the mural and people have been loving it.

"He has done a piece on that wall before and he asked if it was okay to put a Prince tribute piece up and I had no problem with it, so he went ahead and went for it," said Joshua Wilson, owner of Motivasi Coffee 

Robert Beson, who lives next door, told Fox 12, "Whoever drew this, I don't know the guy's name or anything, but I like it."

Gladstone resident Jennifer Vanzepel added, "It fills me with pride for Portland and it fills me with gratitude for Prince and a little bit of sorrow that he's gone."

The purple mural includes the artist, his iconic symbol and doves.
