About:

This is a mural where you can find new hidden details each time you look. Notice the sky is a river, look for where the water runs backward, find the impossible angles. There are hands throughout the design, creative hands holding and gasping and building. The large silhouette figure is abstract to portray an idea coming into the world, cradled by an artist’s hands. This mural shows ideas becoming art. It celebrates how an artist’s hands birth ideas that transcend the physical world.

Artistic Notes:

This mural was created using Dwayne’s usual method. He designs the image, then puts the image over a photo of the wall on his computer, then puts a graph on the actual wall and blocks in the design using the graph. However, Dwayne and Steven soon went “off book” with this creative process. An error during graphing made the main figure in silhouette far larger than intended. Happy with the effect of the error, the artists found themselves inspired to add faces in the cloud, include hidden animals, and delight in painting details that can only exist in an imagined world. Dwayne worked with his son Steven on this mural. The wording on the mural’s commemoration plaque is written by Steven.
