Mr. P’s Tires Mural • Spray Paint on Metal • 2366 S Kinnickinnic Ave, Milwaukee, WI
This mural was part of the Street Canvasing project put on by the Bay View Bid and organized by Stacey Williams of Black Cat Alley. I was lucky enough to be one of five female artists to be selected for five new murals to come to KinnicKinnic Ave. I took inspiration from the proximity to the lake and feeling of flow. I focused my idea on the location, Mr. P’s Tires, to create a concept that would emphasize the structure of the building and use it to my advantage. I picked a color and pattern to make the top of the building seem to lift off, making the bottom act as a watery base. I hope the public is surprised and temporarily lost in a moment when following the organic shapes up and around the building.
Using any smart device and the artivive app, you can unlock a hidden augmented realty layer of the mural.
