It’s no secret how much we like DC artist Kelly Towles, and not just because he’s our good friend, but because his art with a genesis in graffiti and a finishing school in anime is simultaneously gorgeous, surprising and playful…
One of his latest projects, the 2-story tall “Scout” mural on 12th and W St. NW is portrayed by Sebastien Tobler on this short film. I love everything about it, the beautiful Isabella, the Beirut song, the colors, the angles and most importantly how it made my entire family of 10 smile while watching it in a faraway airport.
Press statement below:
“A new mural by street artist Kelly Towles in his hometown of Washington DC. The mural and short film explore a DC neighborhood with a child like sense of exploration. A quick take on what most people should do in their own area of the city. Enjoy!”
