Mural Painting Supplies

 Every year since 2015, Hamilton's StreetSpark program brings new vibrancy to the city in the form of mural art. In total, the artists of StreetSpark have painted 14 incredible outdoor murals, including the three most recent works of art painted throughout the Summer of 2020. These new beauties amplify the surroundings of the city’s North End, Jefferson Park and the local neighborhoods. Check out the new completed murals below— each with their own unique concept. 

 

1. The Robros

Lead Artist and Designer: Logan Walden

Supporting Artists: Kinsey Downs, Jamie Schorsch

Location: 802 Heaton Street | Hamilton, Ohio

Hamilton RoBros Mural

This mural features two larger-than-life robot brothers amidst a vibrant pink sky. The designer of the mural, Logan Walden, intended for the building windows to be used as the robot's eyes. The North End neighborhood has a strong industrial history, so this design concept pays tribute to that as well.

Garden of Dogs Mural

Hidden within this mural are multiple symbolic messages of Ohio— including buckeyes to represent Ohio's state tree, carnations to represent the state flower, trillium to represent the state wildflower, and lady bugs to represent the state bug.

There are also seven bulldogs included representing Hamilton High School’s mascot. Can you spot any?

Garden Parade Mural

135 feet of pure mural joy! This whimsical work of art features a group of children parading between giant sunflowers and garden creatures. The concept was inspired by the mission of the Boys and Girls Club and the surrounding Jefferson community, to help all children feel welcomed and instill a sense of belonging.
