Discussion About The Red 2017, Artist: Franco Fasoli, aka JAZ, An Argentina Artist

Franco JAZ Fasoli blessed Eugene with two murals during his week in town over the summer of 2017. The south wall of the historic McDonald Theatre was the site of his first creation, "Discussion about the red." Based on a small collage he did in Spain inspired by the dialogue that takes place during art festivals, it features two people with heads of birds. Describing his grid technique as painting by numbers, JAZ --assisted by local artist Bayne Gardner-- worked in the shade of an umbrella attached to the side of a boom lift to create this eye-popping work with bold colors. The piece is adjacent to Beau Stanton's 2016 mural on the west wall of the theater.[from 20x21 website]
