Native Flower Mural

in8747 Ferry St, Montague, MI
Description
Here’s a mural I recently finished at The Groove Record Shop in Montague, MI. For this one, I wanted to focus on native flowers because I believe they are incredibly important for the local ecosystem. They support bees, butterflies, and other insects, and can improve soil health and water quality. Since they’re from the area, they are already conditioned to live in this environment without fertilizers or pesticides. Often times we view ourselves as separate from nature because we live in a human built world but we are nature ourselves and we are more connected with it than we might realize. I believe it is our duty to protect the natural world, support local ecosystems, and do everything that we can to ensure that it is protected for future generations of plants, animals, and humans alike. The flowers that are featured in this composition are all native flowers - Black Eyed Susan, Aster, Chicory, Prairie Coreopsis, and Wood Lily.

Meet the Creator

Nick Nortier is a full time illustrator and mural painter but also enjoys woodworking, screen printing, performing spoken word poetry, and the overall process of making creative work. Growing up, his main interests were skating and drawing, two hobbies which would eventually merge into one. From skating, he learned to look at the environment in new and creative ways. He was always visualizing how to interact with a certain obstacle and how to use that to construct an overall composition that was both interesting and aesthetically pleasing. That method of thinking influenced his drawing style and how his work interacts with the area that it’s placed in. He believes the role of street art and murals is to interact with the environment in a way that flows with it and believes that art is for everybody and each piece lives a more full life if it is accessible to everyone.
