NEW MURAL UP!
Quick note to let ya’ll know that there’s a new Yerman mural up in Downtown Vegas! It’s located on 4th and Stewart right across the street from The Grand Hotel and painted on old City Hall building which is now the Zappos.com HQ. This is the first time Yerman has been seen smiling and it’s safe to say that those shoes must be pretty comfy! The mural depicts how I felt when I started working at Zappos, it helped me overcome my bout with depression from my grandfather’s passing, it was truly a new chapter in my life and I’m more than honored to paint this on the wall to symbolize this.
This mural had a completely different process than any other big piece I’ve done. I enlisted local artist Miguel Hernandez to do the galaxy background as he’s one of my favorite local artists and just completely kicks ass with landscapes! As you can see, he completely killed it! After he finished his piece, I layed down the foundation for Yerman. Take a look at the process pictures below to see how this mural came along.
The completed piece measures about 8 feet tall and can be found in the heart of DTLV on the road to the 95 so it’s the last thing you see before leaving Downtown. If you’d like to say hi, he’s located on 4th and Stewart.
