It was a pleasure painting this mural on the side of an elementary school in my home state of Massachusetts. Pow Wow Worcester placed emphasis on the many schools throughout the district and I was paired with Worcester Arts Magnet school. GBV is a shout to Great Brook Valley and LV is Lincoln Village, which are communities located on either side of the schoolyard.
The deep sea rivalry between sperm whales and giant squid are well recorded, but with this mural I wanted to highlight the lesser known rivalry between the whale and banana. I imagined the most fitting context for such a battle would be on the mini golf course. Turns out the golf theme had legs as Lincoln Village was historically a golf club.
