Travel Tuesday – Mural Artist Kobra

Travel Tuesday – Mural Artist Kobra

At the end of last year I had the pleasure of going to a workshop in Wasceca, MN.  Now, lets be honest.  For this city girl, there is not a lot to do in Waseca, MN.  It does have a Wal-Mart but no Starbucks and the closest Olive Garden is about 40 minutes away.  So when I say it is a small town, it is a small town.  But I was there to meet and learn from two of our countries best newborn portrait artists so it was well worth the trip.

The bonus though of going to Waseca, MN is that you have to fly in and out of the St. Paul/Minneapolis airport which is just minutes from The Mall Of America!  Yay!  So after its recently finished renovations the mall is very nice and if you aren’t from Northern Virginia, it has lots of stores that you don’t have access too.  For me though the mall isn’t as big of a draw because I have access to most of the stores all within a 20 minute drive from my home.  So what do you do when you are visiting Minneapolis and you don’t have to rush to the Mall of America to go shopping?  Well, myself and two other photographers decided to go visit this recently finished mural by the street artist Kobra.

The title of this mural is “Times They are A-Changin'” and it features Minneapolis native, Bob Dylan throughout the years.  It is 200 by 50 meters in size and is painted on the side of a  building that faces a pay parking lot.  Kobra is known for this style of art and has been commissioned to do murals all over the world.  His style is easily recognizable.

It was so great to see this in person.  If you want to see pictures of this in progress, you can visit Kobra’s website.    It isn’t in English though so hopefully your Portuguese is pretty good.
