RISK x NATHAN OTA mural
Posted February 11th, 2013 at 01:30am by Risky
Last week I painted a mural at Will Rogers Elementary School with my good friend Nathan Ota. This one was especially fun because We had the opportunity to meet and talk to the kids from the elementary school as well as the junior high kids from across the street. I love working with Kids and their knowledge and insight was very refreshing. I was also happy to paint out doors with Nathan Ota, my old high school partner in crime. Although we paint in the studio frequently, we haven’t painted a public mural in over 20 years. good times!
On the front side I took advantage of the 3 panels and used the primary colors to do an abstract beautifully destroyed series. The abstract elements on the right edge and the larger dots on the left represent a spiral notebook. The geometrical line work also works well on these panels because Will Rogers is STEM-focus school which means they fully engage and integrate the Sciences, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. (STEM)Thank You to the great staff and extremely supportive parents at Will Rogers! Good Times….
