"Our Lady of Aalborg" : New Mural in Denmark









Here are shots of a mural I just painted in Aalborg, Denmark while there for my solo show at Galerie Wolfsen. The mural is titled "Our Lady of Aalborg". It's across the street from the maternity ward of Aalborg University Hospital, so an iconic symbol of motherly love seemed appropriate for this location. Painting this was complicated by unpredictable weather and rain, but it was a great experience. Painting three stories up in a lift while it's raining isn't so bad, at least in retrospect. Many thanks to Rasmus and Kent of Galerie Wolfsen for making this mural possible. Thanks also to my brother from another mother Ari Bracamonte for providing ground support for the entire process. Thanks also to Bri Acsani for modeling, Lone Allen for her help, and everyone else that showed support.

I agree...the world would be a much more pleasant, if not more bearable, place if all blah buildings were beautified in this uplifting way...
