Beau Stanton made his way from Los Angeles, CA en route to Brooklyn, NY to visit Graffiti HeArt organization in Cleveland and paint this glorious mural along the adjacent wall to their graffiti gallery & museum at 4829 Superior Avenue, Cleveland.
Beau’s work consists of “large scale murals, mosaics, stained glass, and multimedia animations. Heavily informed by historic ornamentation, mythology, and the classics, his work seeks to draw parallels between past narratives and contemporary human issues such as climate change, environmental conservation, and post industrialization”.
Beau came to Cleveland on an invite from Stamy Paul, President & Founder of Graffiti HeArt, a Cleveland-based non-profit, after several projects were cancelled for both Graffiti HeArt and Beau due to Covid-19. Beau’s piece, (soon to be titled) was inspired by the transportation guardians on the Hope Memorial bridge in Cleveland, Ohio, and takes in the elements of nature and the environment including elements from the great lakes. “The Graffiti HeArt-funded mural project is our way of giving back to Cleveland during a time of uncertainty,” said Paul.
Beau finished his large scale mural on Tuesday, August 4th on the Fischer & Jirouch building. Many thanks to the Graffiti HeArt major #Badass Sponsor, Hilton Cleveland for providing lodging for Beau Stanton and his artist team, as well as the special donors and community friends including Fit Technologies, CLE Urban Winery, Platform Brewing, Madtree Brewing, Cleveland Whisky, Western Reserve Distillery, and Fahrenheit.
