NEVERCREW – “El oso plateado and the machine”
Series of three interconnected mural paintings realized in downtown Phoenix (Arizona, USA). Curated by Anne-Laure Lemaitre (FatCap), 2018.
All this makes it a perfect substrate for the NEVERCREW who recently created 3 separate murals on the Heard Building curated by AnneLaure Lemaitre of FatCap. The 3 murals not only explore the amazing diversity and physical skill the NEVERCREW display with just Montana GOLD and bucket paint, the murals also attempted to caputure a sense of the buildings history and presence in it’s environment.

A continuing thread through out the artworks and the buildings history is communication. The main mural which appears to be the Mexican Grizzlies dipped in oil, could be seen as a literal comment on the extinction of this once majestic creature. The second biggest mural “On Air” is a perfectionists tip of the hat to the former radio tenants. The final and smallest indoor mural, appears to be a machine that could be a contraption used to print in the days gone by as news rooms. Together the three works are an impressive display of talent, skill and a respectful gift to the building and the community of Phoenix. New NEVERCREW mural in Phoenix Arizona
