Recently I was commissioned to create a mural in the Shelby Park neighborhood in Louisville by Access Ventures. Working with the neighborhood association, we talked to members of the community about what Shelby Park meant to them and how they would summarize the neighborhood. The response was overwhelming and after pouring over the feedback I focused on a statement that reflected Shelby Park's positive outlook and growth as a tight-knit community.
As opposed to previous murals the building was very wide, presenting a great opportunity to explore new constraints. After several mock-ups I decided to create a design that is legible in it's entirety from the street. Once approved, I again collaborated with sign painter Kirby Stafford to bring the design to life.
