Client: Salem Arts Festival
Location: Salem, MA
The Salem Arts Festival is a joint project of Salem Main Streets and Creative Collective – Salem Main Streets is funded in part by the City of Salem. This was my first year taking part in the Salem Arts Festival Mural Slam at Salem's Artist Row. Each year during the Festival, roughly a dozen artists are chosen to participate in a mural festival. Each artist has a primed 4'x8' panel to create their piece throughout the weekend for attendees so see the creative process. I knew I wanted to paint something sea themed but I wanted it to be playful. I created a mythological sea creature - a sort of "humpback serpent." and the feedback was great from kids and adult alike.
