TRUDUST

I decided to try something new this year. It didn’t come out 100%, but I definitely learned a few things, so that’s a win. I love insects and entomology, always have since I was a little kid. I thought it would be fun to try to paint one of those adorable little jumping spiders that frequent our house and eat the flies in the windowsill…

I’ve never tried to paint something dimensional and ‘realistic’ with spray paint, so this was a fun experiment. Happy with the turnout, looking forward to the next time I can try something like this again.

All in all, great fun! Big thanks to the State Fair, Nancy Nortz, and all participating artists! We’ll see you next year!

The Great State Fair Mural Demo

GRAFFITI, ART, PLAZA DISTRICTDusty GilpinComment

This marks the 6th year we've been demonstrating mural and graffiti painting at the State Fair of Oklahoma. We began with only 6 and have increased the exhibition to 18 painters! It is always a great time and incredible atmosphere to get to paint. We always end up getting a very welcomed reaction from the passersby, and Nancy Nortz along with the rest of the State Fair staff is wonderfully accommodating!

Scroll through the carousel gallery below to see all 18 of the panels!

Thanks again to all participating artists, Nancy Nortz and the State Fair of Oklahoma! Lastly, a lot of these artists painted during the Plaza Festival at the Plaza Walls! So if you missed them the first time around, come check out the latest artwork in the neighborhood!
