Cherry Creek Mural Creation in Denver CO

Cherry Creek Mural Creation in Denver CO

The Cherry Creek mural creation took place in November 2018. It is my second mural created for the Denver Urban Arts Fund Graffiti prevention program. It took me around three weeks to finish the mural. The weather in November wasn’t helping me much. It snowed, froze and rained often, so I had to stay home a lot, instead of going to paint as I planned. Pictures of the process of the Cherry Creek mural creation: The mural is located in a very busy part of the Cherry Creek trail. Cherry Creek flows into the South Platte River there, in Confluence Park. The mural consists of abstract geometric shapes and designs. Images of state symbols and local birds and animals are intertwined among it. This mural is the second part of my “Symbols of Colorado” mural series. The first one, mural “Viva Colorado” I painted in the fall of 2016. It is located at West Alameda Ave and Santa Fe Drive. To see the pictures of that mural, please visit the project page > You can read more about the design idea in my previous post about this mural project > The TV network Telemundo did a video feature with me, please see the interview here > Here you can see a video of the finished mural: ____________ Denver, CO / 2018...

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...
