New mural I painted for One11 hair studio in Miami, below you will find the video with the whole story. Richard and Esteban came to me a few weeks ago asking me to paint a mural for them at their hair studio. They had already something in mind, they wanted me to paint a kind of androgynous woman. A painting that would be feminine, but also have strong angular features. After a first attempt of a sketch where i mixed both woman and man in the same portrait, they told me they wanted something more subtle. So I came back with this sketch, and they both approved it right away. I wanted her to have a third eye, that to me represents them. Represents the people working at the salon, that have an attentive look on their clients and execute a wonderful and precise job. The character has both eyes closed to accentuate her calm and peaceful state of mind.
My first idea was to execute the mural with spray paint, but Richard insisted for me to paint with house paint. After four days of work, here she is, facing the entrance of the salon, welcoming the team and their clients everyday.
I am really thankful to both Richard and Esteban for this great opportunity to paint at their salon One11 hair studio, they offered me perfect conditions to paint, I truly appreciate that. Check them out, their work is amazing. The whole team has a great energy, you can feel the good vibes as soon as you enter the salon! Thank you guys!
