My Painted Stairs Project in Denver CO

My Painted Stairs Project in Denver CO

Painted Stairs Project was a part of “Imagine 2020“: Denver’s Cultural Plan by Denver Arts and Venues. #IMAGINE2020 is a program advancing arts and culture in the city of Denver. They organized an art competition between the city districts of Denver. The district #5 and a councilwoman Mary Beth Susman, invited me to paint a staircase in the district she represents as a part of this event. I used street marking paint for this painted stairs mural, so it will last longer on the staircase. Please, check out my other murals using such paint: a street mural in Aurora CO > and Ground mural project for the 40 West ArtLine in Lakewood, CO. My favorite helpers: my husband Nick Angelo and daughter Aleksandra.  The design for the mural. The staircase before the mural.

My New Cherry Creek Mural coming soon in Denver

My New Cherry Creek Mural coming soon in Denver

“Symbols of Colorado” is back with a sequel mural for the Denver’s Urban Arts Fund graffiti prevention Mural Program. This week I started working on my next mural project at Cherry Creek Trail adjacent to Confluence Park. I hope Colorado will give us a nice and warm November!   The Cherry Creek mural will be painted on the walls of the creek, facing a very busy pedestrian walkway and bike path. At first, the mural was planned to be painted as a continuation of my mural “Symbols of Colorado” on W. Alameda Ave and I-25 in Denver Colorado. But when the time came for the mural to be painted, I found out that the walls will be reconstructed within the next two years. So a new location for the mural needed to be found. Cherry Creek in Denver is a local hub for muralists, both local and international. More than 20 murals had been painted there in past years. So the decision to paint a mural there was an easy one. It’ll be nice for me to have a mural on Cherry Creek in Denver. As I said above the theme for the mural is a continuation of my 2016 mural with symbols of Colorado. If my first mural showed more known Colorado symbols like the state animal, state flower, state tree, and state fish; the second mural will acquaint viewers with less known symbols: the state reptile, state dinosaur, state bird and other birds and animals native to Colorado: bison, pheasant, Cliff Swallow, woodpecker, and prehistoric looking Double-crested Cormorant. The natural views are mixed with the old city architecture, the Rocky Mountains and bright sun are an indispensable...
A New Tunnel Art in Longmont Colorado is Coming Soon!

A New Tunnel Art in Longmont Colorado is Coming Soon!

Tunnel art at 21st & Hover street underpass in Longmont, CO will be my next exciting project! The underpass is mostly used by bicycle and pedestrian traffic from nearby communities, who are going to McIntosh Lake, Garden Acres park, using the designated “Longmont (bicycle) Loop” or accessing the many businesses. Mural Design Longmont is a small city with a growing population that still has a small town feel, honoring the historical roots to the Chicago colony while concurrently embracing the technological advances of modern day society and the opportunities provided. Longmont continues to grow in its representation of diverse cultures. Realistic images are mixed in with stylized, representing the diversity of culture in Longmont. Poppy flowers, osprey, a cyclist on a mountain pass, and historic colonial buildings. Multi Modal colorful design elements resemble a collage or a quilt. The walls inside the underpass will have light and bright colors to brighten up the tunnel and invite people to go through the underpass. North Wall.  The west wing has images of Longmont’s beautiful lakes and nature and our bright Colorado Sun; over the old colonial buildings; Water birds, fish, and flowers all native to Colorado; All across the mural I included flowers and blooming plants as a symbol of growth and inspiration. Also, bears on a tandem bicycle. South Wall. Flowers, plants, an unicyclist with fresh farmed produce, representing the agricultural past of Longmont. Abstract shapes and forms, Floral elements; Lakes, mountains and birds. The Collage style of the design represents the diversity of Longmont’s people and its culture. This is an energetic and rhythmic design; it invites people to continue their...
Ground Mural Painting in Mountair Park

Ground Mural Painting in Mountair Park

My second ground mural painting for Lakewood’s 40 West Art Line. The mural is painted right next to the children’s playground and baseball field in Mountair Park. The mural is called “Blooming city”. The mural design was inspired by the agricultural history of Lakewood and the urban farm that is also in Mountair Park. The flowers and plants represent the growth and new beginnings that are happening in the city. To see the design for both murals please visit this post >   My first mural for the 40 West Artline “Movement” is painted on the sidewalk of 17th Street, between Pierce and Reed streets also in Lakewood, CO.  To see pictures of it please visit my previous blog post > _____________ Lakewood, CO /...
Design for Alameda Light rail Station Mural Project

Design for Alameda Light rail Station Mural Project

The design for “Alameda” light rail station in Denver, CO was one among other projects that I created and submitted in 2017. It was an international call with hundreds of submissions from all over the world, but I still decided to participate. The building where the mural was planned to be painted on belongs to Xcel Energy. That is why it was encouraged to have elements of electricity, energy, and sustainability. It is a long wall that was wrapping the building, with many “bends” and corners. Other themes to be included were transportation and city life due to the initiator of the project, The Denver Light Rail transit system. My idea was to create a detailed mural with strong symbolic significance as well as very monumental and powerful. My design has many faces, people, and emotions in it.   I tried to interlace timeless elements of nature with modern life and with its characteristics: electricity, transportation, cities, and industrialism. At the same time, I wanted this mural to give a feeling of hope and optimism for the future.   As with a few other projects of 2017 that I wrote posts about, my design wasn’t chosen for realization. But it was fun to participate in this project, create an interesting design and learn a lot about Denver through research in preparation for it. Denver, CO /...
