The artist list for the Shine Mural Festival is officially in

David Larson Evans: On Being Human

The human figure, and the human experience, provide infinite possibilities for interpretation from artists. In his new exhibit, On Being Human, opening at St. Pete Artworks on Saturday, David Larson Evans captures the human figure in moments of stillness. The paintings portray the figure in repose, some serene, others contemplative. Swirling, drippy backgrounds add a nice dimension. The opening reception is Saturday from 6 to 9 p.m. at St. Pete ArtWorks, 635 Central Ave. gcaa-fl.org.

Roll Call: Shine Mural Festival Artists

The popular Shine Mural Festival, now in its third year, returns to St. Pete walls Oct. 5-14, and festival curators have announced the list of participating artists. Similar to past years, the roster is a mix of local, national and international artists. Earlier this summer, an Open Wall Call went out to local artists to vie for their own mural in the festival. The winner was John Suarez, a graduate of Ringling College of Art and Design, who goes by the moniker Suarezart. Five other bay area artists are also on the list: Jujmo, Zulu Painter, Herbert Scott Davis, Jared "Thirst" Hernandez and R5 (Daniel Barojas). Artists from far and wide will also bring their skills to the Burg, including Cryptik (Los Angeles), Joram Roukes (Netherlands) and Waone (Ukraine). In total, 15 walls and one underpass will be transformed into works of art. Stay updated at shineonstpete.com.
