Did you see the fantastic mural at a NYC nursery by street artist Roa over at Leaflets yesterday? I am absolutely in love with this art — so much so that I am re-considering a plan I am about to put in place.
Have I mentioned that I am going to be commissioning a mural for the garden side of my barn? I have a few ideas about what I might like as a backdrop for my garden and what I want to see when I look out my front door and take in the scene but I want to see what happens when I share my vision and then turn it over to another artistic mind.
My plan has been to (hopefully) find someone who is looking for a giant canvas through the magic of craigslist – I think it would be wonderful to perhaps give an opportunity to a young artist – but now I am wondering if it might be a better idea to reach out to specific people whose work I like (though I just don’t know who they are) – or maybe street artisits…. hmmmm. What do you know about commisioning art? Working with muralists? Finding street artists?
