A few months ago I was asked create a mural for a building undergoing renovation and restoration here in Louisville, KY. The building is being converted to some amazing lofts, nestled right between downtown and the Nulu district. After learning more about the building's rich history and the lengths being taken to preserve & restore it's architecture, it felt like a good fit and a hell of a lot of fun. I was given a few key words to use as inspiration, then told to just roll with it.
Once it had the green light I brought in sign painter extrodinaire, Kirby Stafford, to bring the design to life. Kirby and I collaborated on the highlands mural nearly 2 years ago, and I was excited to have the opportunity to work together again. A yardstick, stick of chalk and printed piece of paper of the layout is all he needed, and he couldn't have done a better job. Kirby's craft and attention to detail is second to none and it was amazing to watch.
