Not too far from my home is Geekbox Computers, a gaming-computer store with a beautiful mural on the side of the building. It has an almost surreal “2001 – Space Odyssey” feel to it. I love the image of the woman astronaut.
I tried to locate the author at the given website, but it’s not available….
The place is obviously closed…and the mural has been created on the wood that was used to cover the store-front windows. I was actually looking for the business next door at 50 East 300 South when I stumbled across this one. I rather like it….
I can’t imagine that there’s much more work to be done in completing this mural…but then again, I’m not the artist, so I can’t fairly judge what else he/she/they might have planned. You can click on these earlier posts’ titles to see the progress that’s been made since the beginning of the work…City Paint 6.1 – Becoming, and City Paint 6.2 – Progress Report on “Becoming,” or you can scroll to the bottom of the page and select the “Street Art – Graffiti” category to view the complete City Paint series.
If you’ll scroll back to “City Paint 6.1 – Becoming,” you’ll see the first two weeks’ progress on this western-themed mural that happens to be on the wall that encloses a parking lot behind a gun store, of all things. This is the third installment of the mural’s progress, the first two being covered in the earlier post. By the amount of work that’s been done since the last set of shots, it looks like it might be completed during this next week.
The first three shots are the three panels of the mural that are similar to the photos from the earlier post, presented in order from left to right.
And the final four photos are close-ups of the significant pieces of the mural, offered to show greater detail of the work….
