These sunflowers are on the back of monOrchid, a gallery I’ve written about before in downtown Phoenix. They are done by a new-to-me muralist, Isaac N. Caruso. He just recently graduated from Northern Arizona University with a BFA in Visual Communication and he is making his presence known in Phoenix now.
You can see the grasshopper from my last post here.
I could only photograph from outside the fence so the chainlinks are smudging up some of these photos.
The reason that this mural is currently fenced in is because this burned out historic building is being restored.
I went around to another side of monOrchid that I had photographed before and there was Isaac N. Caruso himself putting some finishing touches on the orchid.
He also painted the bird for the brand new Songbird Coffee & Tea House, which is in the front of monOrchid.
I think we are going to be seeing a lot more of Isaac on the walls of Phoenix.
*Update: I guess Isaac liked the photos because he is now using the second one from the bottom as his profile pic on his Facebook page. Cool.
