City Paint Phoenix 19 – New “Krank” Mural

You might remember that we met this artist almost two years ago in my post titled, “Cabezas Curiosas.”  It appears that Tyson Krank has been busy again….


I happened to drive through the alley behind the Laird Apartments, at 317 West McDowell Road in Phoenix, a couple of months ago to take another look at the Southwest Goddess mural that I shared here in February, 2015.  What a nice surprise to find this bit of a treasure just waiting to be appreciated.  The time of day brought the shadows of the power lines, as well as the over-brightness noticed on the right half of the above image….


Eyes like dark pools…..fantastic detail wrought with spray paint.


Iphound art….

  1. I wonder what the intent — if any — of that particular facial treatment?

    • Art…mystery…making people wonder…?

    • I think there must be more to it than just doing something to make people curious. Then again, I can’t fathom an artist’s mind. For all I know, they might have been high or drunk at the time (I understand many artists “enhance” their sensory input to reach new and exciting creative planes).

    • There you go, Emilio…maybe Liana stated it best…if the image is of the (a) goddess…it’s impossible to know her face….

      Thank you, Lady of the Lake….. 🙂
