On The Wall Prod. Mural

Featured In Urban Harvest STL, St. Louis, MO

Item details

Our most recent mural in St. Louis for Urban Harvest STL. A big thanks to them for supporting public art. We had lots of help from groups of volunteers, who helped from wall prep to painting. We wanted to create a design that was both inspired by Urban Harvest STL’s mission of food equity, as well as create something that fits into the landscape of downtown St. Louis. We used design motifs and colors from the facades of surrounding buildings to inspire the golden portal. The flowers are directly pulled from their rooftop garden, and the green ring reflects the pattern from the already existing pattern around the doorway. A little bit calming, a little bit exciting, mildly psychedelic.
Our On The Wall Prod. murals are always site-specific. We enjoy learning the history, spending time watching the flow of traffic, and talking to folks (we met so many amazing people working on this!). After all, once we leave the mural site, it is the community that owns the mural. My dad/mural partner always says, “don’t think about yourself and what you see, think about what the wall sees.” Walls have been watching our neighborhoods long before us, they have stories to tell. It is our job as public artists to unleash them.

Meet the Creator
Liza Fishbone is a multi-disciplinary artist based in Austin, TX.

Through her work, she confronts the intangible nature of Space and Home and explores the feeling of belonging one place and many places simultaneously. Liza uses the world around her as a canvas, bringing attention to surfaces otherwise overlooked.

Growing up surrounded by painters, musicians and storytellers taught her the importance of public art and introduced her to the world of thinking big. From a young age, she learned to paint by climbing alongside her parents as they created murals in St. Louis. Her work is heavily influenced by her time spent in the scenic department of The MUNY Opera, where she became obsessed with paint mixing, the studios of Syracuse University earning a BFA in Fashion Design, and traveling around the world with just a backpack.

Liza is also the creator of The Moon Puppies, an interactive universe from millions of smiles away. Through The Moon Puppies, she invites people into another world where they can lose themselves in the absurd and rediscover their childlike sense of wonder.
