Denizen of Brazilian Street Artist's Animal Kingdom Comes Alive On Downtown Art Scene
As of last Wednesday morning, a vibrant new mural by Brazil's internationally acclaimed street artist Arlin Graff occupies the south and east walls of Shindigz Place in downtown Fort Wayne.
The massive work, titled River Otter, is part of the the city's Art This Way program, managed by Alex Hall.
Animals are the celebrated muralist's principal theme, executed in his distinctively creative style that pairs whimsically colorful representations of the animal kingdom with elements of the modern technological world.
Before the final coat of paint was dry, WBOI's Julia Meek ushered Graff and Hall into the studio to talk about the dramatic new piece, the procedure and Graff's passion for his craft.
Connect with the artist and his work at the Arlin Graff website.
