TITLE: Just Another Smiley Day
ARTIST: Evan Kasle
LOCATION: 599 S Plymouth Ct
"As with the rest of my work, this mural focuses on using the human form to personify concepts. This mural design is intended to represent the human ability to shield true emotions by putting on a smiling face. The teeth are meant to represent internal struggles, insecurities, and negative thoughts hiding inside, masked by the overly happy larger face. The eyes also serve as distractions from the negativity, symbolizing a beautiful feature, pretty eyes. People can often focus merely on the external elements of a person, or the mask of false-positivity and beauty, forgetting to dig deeper to reveal the person’s true self."
