Woodward Windows in Detroit

"I made this piece while in Detroit in January as part of the Woodward Windows project downtown. It was a really good time even though the vacant storefront I was working in didn't have heat or proper lighting. I felt like I was making something in a post apocalyptic future. I wanted to make the mural very specific to Detroit so I incorporated design elements I found on my previous trip to the city including the ceiling pattern from the Guardian building. Ideas of growth, rebirth, creation, and progress all contributed to the imagery I choose to combine into the end result."
