FELIPE PANTONE Chromadynamica for RAD Napa
The latest episode of FELIPE PANTONEs series of Chromadynamica artworks just happened in California. The Napa Valley Vine Trail, Napa Valley Wine Train and members of the local arts community teamed to create a special art district in the Napa Valley, named Rail Arts District (RAD) Napa. After finishing his huge Chromadynamica mural in Lisbon, FELIPE PANTONE joined the lineup of outstanding artists that will transform the 1.7-mile section of the Napa Valley Vine Trail into a unique exhibition of contemporary art.
For RAD Napa, FELIPE PANTONE painted a 3,5 meter high and 30 meter long wall with one of his pixelated bright shining color transitions that come up against elements of strong black and white contrasts. The wall is located next to the tracks of the Wine Train in a semi-industrial area that’s the perfect contrasting surrounding for his futuristic artwork. As his Chromadynamica artwork in Lisbon this newest mural is inspired by his current series of artworks. It’s the second mural at RAD Napa following the amazing work of BEZT (ETAM CRU) and NATALIA RAK working together. CHROMADYNAMICA NAPA CALIFORNIA FELIPE PANTONE
In June of 2014 members of the Napa Valley Vine Trail’s Arts, Culture and Education (ACE) committee began focusing on improving the user experience and engaging the community through art on the existing rail and bike corridor, currently known as the “Cross Town Commuter Path” located in the heart of Napa. A sub-committee started meeting regularly to discuss potential art applications and coordination with our local public agencies. The new Napa Valley Wine Train owners learned of our endeavors and approached us as a partner, adding momentum and support to our artistic vision. Source: www.radnapa.org
