Mural, Cyclists and Runners

British artist Martin Webb executed this mesmerizing mural on the side of DICK’s Sporting Goods’ Santa Rosa location. The piece is part of the city’s public art project, which had strict design stipulations and restrictions, but according to Webb, fit right in with his style of weaving layered abstractions with themes of people in motion. Each wall is 25 x 95ft.

Meet the Creator

My work comes from thoughts about people, places, and home; about age, time, and timelessness, permanence and impermanence; about movement, migration, and belonging. People and places are depicted in images and objects that combine simple representations, layered abstractions, and plain-spoken materials.

I’m always fascinated by people’s relationship with the land and time, how the natural and manmade landscape records people’s movements and stories, and in particular the way that things we regard as solid and permanent are actually temporary, in flux, and part of a continuum much larger than ourselves.” - Martin Webb
