Just a few days after the announcement of his passing, Angus Cloud has already been honored with a mural in his hometown of Oakland, California.
According to CBS News, the mural, which is located on a building on East 19th Street between 3rd and Park, showcases the "Euphoria" star's face surrounded by the word “ANGUS” and his birth and death dates. Local artist Darin Balaban, who knew Cloud personally, told the news station that he was working on a new project on that wall before he heard the devastating news. “It was really touching and I hope that people that knew Angus — or were affected by him, you know — bring something positive away from this wall,” Balaban said.
As previously reported by HOT 97, Cloud's family released a statement on Monday (July 31) confirming that he died in their home. Although the cause of death has not been announced, it was reported that he had “intensely struggled” coping with the recent death of his father, Conor Hickey. “It is with the heaviest heart that we had to say goodbye to an incredible human today. As an artist, a friend, a brother and a son, Angus was special to all of us in so many ways,” the family said, according to TMZ.
“Last week, he buried his father and intensely struggled with this loss. The only comfort we have is knowing Angus is now reunited with his dad, who was his best friend. Angus was open about his battle with mental health, and we hope that his passing can be a reminder to others that they are not alone and should not fight this on their own in silence,” they continued. After the death of his father, Cloud shared a photo on Instagram of Hickey wearing a red sweatsuit and smiling with his pinky finger pointed. “Miss you breh,” the actor captioned the post on July 14.
