Overview

30'h x 60'w Silicate paint on historic brick facade

Goals

The client wanted something that represented the renaissance of downtown Cheyenne, but that also spoke a message of "love". His father was also a prolific collector of antique cherubs, with were integral to the decor of area bars, saloons, etc.

Process

We developed a number of ideas for the wall, but it always came back to "cherubs". The client did NOT want anything that was regularly associated with Cheyenne, such as cows, bulls, cowboys, boots, etc., so it was our job to find that "different" image.
