One of the most sought-after Chinese street artists is working in Eugene as part of the 20x21 EUG Mural Project. Hua Tunan was born in 1991 in Foshan, Guangdong province. His street art style combines traditional Chinese art with Western graffiti through the use of action and splatter painting to create bold compositions of animals. Images of Hua’s past work can be seen at http://huatunan.tumblr.com/.
Hua’s Eugene mural is made possible in part by partnering with Vistra at 411 West 4th Ave., where he is painting the exterior wall through June 23rd. Hua’s piece will be the fourth mural in the 20x21EUG Mural Project. 20x21 is an initiative of the City of Eugene’s Public Art Program to create 20 world-class murals in our community by 2021.
This summer from July 29 – August 4, seven international and local street artists will create mural magic in the city during Eugene Walls. For more information, visit 20x21eug.com
