Mural by Christian Schmit






We were in Cincinnati recently (installing my husbands show - topographies by Stephen Cartwright). And had the chance to walk around the city and cross over the river into Kentucky to a really cute little neighborhood where I discovered these fantastic murals.
Here's a link to some better photos.
I really like the muted colors and sparse bits of color.

This may be my favorite Cincinnati-area mural, and I spend a lot of time scrutinizing and documenting them. Christian did an amazing job with the pedestrian-friendly, low-visibility context by creating a complex, subtly colored narrative mural that needs to be appreciate up close and with a bit of time and attention.

I spent a while just looking at it too, the details are just incredible and the fine clean lines are incredible especially when you look at the bumpy surface he had to paint on.
