Double the Luck Mural

Featured In The Shops at Buckhead, Atlanta, GA

Item details

This mural was created for the Shops Buckhead in Atlanta in 2018 . It measures approximately 12 feet high and 28 feet wide.

This image is based on one of my screen-print images, titled Lady Luck, which are more stylized and graphic with an explosion of vivid colors when compared with my usual paintings. This specific image is inspired by traditional Venetian rabbit masks and contemporary fashion combined with pattern. It is based on one aspect of the associated symbolism of the rabbit, which in this case is good luck.

The work seeks to explore the recurrence of archetypal personalities amidst our material evolution by investigating the role of the mask and reversing its purpose to reveal traits about the wearer rather than conceal them.
