Watch as artist Kelly Towles creates a street-smart, tattooed, urban cowboy – riding on a cloud
I love the direction Kelly Towles‘ recent murals have taken: the clouds, the colors, and the hidden characters; urban edge with a dash of whimsy. You should be able to walk by a mural and find something new each day, and his murals have secrets to be found everywhere.
I filmed Kelly using a combination of video and stop-motion time-lapse as he painted this mural inside the DC Brau Brewing Co. The mural is only one element of Kelly’s collaboration with DC Brau; he also created three limited edition labels for DC Brau bottles. The bottles and this film both premiered last Friday at an event at Kushi Izakaya.
I commend DC Brau for this forward-thinking collaboration. Local business supporting local artists like Kelly Towles are the key element to creating a growing professional creative community in Washington DC.
