I painted a series of seven large electric utility boxes in downtown Gainesville for the 352walls project. All of these art interventions are part of the “Electrical Animals” series, which I created specifically for this location. They were based on blending my reinterpretative approach to Portuguese azulejos and examples of Florida's curious fauna. Each painting was thus a small tribute to one of the many animals found in the Sunshine State.
