Description

Artwork DescriptionOne of five outdoor artworks mounted on the fence of Royal Athletic Park as part of the parks's revitalization.
Artwork StatementMy intent for the mural was to create a kind of giant scoreboard/comic book combining pop culture icons with painterly strategies of abstration and symbology to create a brightly coloured oasis of visual pleasure and humour.
