Local artist Connor Lock unveils pump-up mural for new downtown boxing gym

[image-1] It's hard to miss Connor Lock and co.'s latest work of art — a giant mural on the side of Grit Box, a new workout studio downtown. Lock's company, S E V E N, recently completed the mural, which bears the words "Fight for what's right," inspired by Grit Box owner Cody Cooper's life mantra.

Grit Box's downtown location, 2 Carlson Court, is the former spot of The Southern, a contemporary art gallery. While we were bummed when The Southern closed, we're happy to see a local business owner has moved in — and is championing local art, to boot.  [image-2] In an Instagram post describing the mural, Lock says: "When thinking of his life mantra of 'fight for what's right,' the concept of the brick-busting-pulsing heart of the city was born … This piece acts as inspiration for the Charleston community and as a daily reminder to any of its viewers to ask themselves 'am I fighting for what's right?'"
