Bold Hype – Mythology Mural Show

by Nathan SpoorPosted on

Exciting things are bubbling across the span of states in the land of Floridians. Orlando’s fine art connoisseurs at Bold Hype have come up with a very interesting take on the temporary nature of the art show. Over the span of a week, they closed their doors for a small troop of local talent to transform the space into their versions of the mythic state of their craft.

Currently on exhibit at Bold Hype in Orlando, FL is the epic wall jam known as their “M” exhibit. The theme, conjured up by owner / operator Eric Althin and friend and local artist Decoy, centers around 10 artists’ views of the mythological themes pertaining to their own tastes and work. Each artist secured at least 8 x 8 feet of first come / first serve wall space to create their temporary masterpieces over which they would hang their unique painted surfaces. 

The following images document the week of preparation, during which some artists made marathon art sessions and rolled out with just enough sanity to greet the crowd of eager patrons and viewers.

A good time was actually had by all, enthusiastically, for this was a celebration of the impermanent nature of the mural, public and private. Thanks for coming out, Viking man. And you also, fellow viewers. Until next time…
