Street Art & Mural Artists — Go Big or Go Home

Street artists and mural artists express creativity and many times opinion. (Check Banksy who hit the world stage in a big way.)

I’m inspired by these artists’ ability to capture in one image what many of us are feeling and thinking. Art should  challenge us … and not in a ‘hey, I can paint naked people’ kind of way.

*errr plz no*

Art can sometimes speak in a flash about topics like poverty, music, collaboration, beauty and tons more.

Thank you for slamming it out there.

Perhaps it’s the general gutsiness of painting in large strokes that means you have to throw everything out there. Those of us struggling with our inner voice and straining against ‘do I paint this or that’ may have a hard time putting not only our art, but out opinions out there for the world to see.

If you put it all out there, what would you say?

But wait! There’s more!

Artisan Forge is hosting the Uptown Art Jam October 21st, 2017 in Eau Claire, WI, bringing some kickin’ mural artists to live demo their work.

You heard me.

Among the artists will be Few and Far Women. (click the link to see some gorgeous art)

So, what do you do with all of this awesomeness? Be inspired, yes, but do something with it! Explore new colors, express new thoughts,…

grab a can of spray paint.
