Seattle Urban Art Mural on 23rd & Dearborn

So this is the mural that I did for Pb Elemental on 23rd & Dearborn. It is right next to Parnells Mini Mart. Last week I put the final clear coat on and today I stenciled in my signature. Also in the works is a documentary about the project. I was fortunate to find Aaron Last at a time when he wasn't busy and was able to help out in creating this documentary.

Here is front side of the foundation that faces the street.

This mural was a real eye opener for me. This is the biggest project that I have worked on and it taught me a handful of things. The biggest thing that it taught me, or should I say it showed me, was that art creates dialogue and that dialogue creates communication. And that is what I was hoping to catch with the theme of this painting.

Title: Communication of Ideas
Size: 12' x 20'
Medium: Spray paint and acrylics on cement
