A proud tiger prowls along a brick wall in the Central East Side. It overlooks a parking lot next to the train tracks that provides free parking for businesses close to Southeast Water Avenue — Cargo, Hair of the Dog Brewing Co., and the Lippman Company.

This is where street artist Ernesto Maranje paints from a hydraulic lift, the hiss of spray-paint cans just audible over the drone of traffic on the Morrison Bridge. The mural is the latest project from Paint Outside the Lines, an international nonprofit that brings art to areas of conflict and displacement.
