TITLE: 1000 Wall


LOCATION: 1326 S. Michigan


I was very excited about the opportunity to work with Neysa for the Wabash Arts Corridor of which I had heard quite a bit before already. When she sent me photos and measurements of the wall I was intimidated by the size, which hasn’t happened in a long time. But absolutely everyone on that project was dedicated 100% and made this mural my smoothest painting experience to date. We had no broken lifts, we didn’t run out of paint and we were very lucky with the weather. I was even offered a physical therapist because after 22 years of painting, this mural had caused me the first sore arm ever.” The 1000 Wall – aptly titled for its immense size of 1000 square meters – is world-renowned MadC’s largest mural to date. The work was painted in under two weeks with two lifts, 30 gallons of bucket paint and 1093 Molotow spray cans.
