Pat Lazo: "After hearing about the business and trying to come up with a theme, I had seen one of the other
artist's drawings and I thought a could do a Pavarotti character screaming with a monitor for his head! It's
just something I came up with- I'm not sure where it came from."
Cyrus Smith: "I was contacted about this wall which had already started. We went and visited the wall and
noticed the columns that we could paint on. Dean had already started and Pat was also going to work on it.
So I went home and I was thinking about visual and audio (pertaining to the production company there). I
didn't know if they wanted anything specific to represent the business, so I started doing some silly sketches,
like a microphone wearing a headset- but it looked nice. It was easier to do because of how separate each
piece was, the panels."
"The Murals that I've done that are aerosol based can help people understand the art form in this city. The
medium- not necessarily the art behind it, but the medium itself, is demonized in our fair city. So it's kind
of nice to share what CAN be done with it."
