We are excited to introduce the new mural at our Jacksonville location. We wanted to do something to welcome and express our appreciation to the black community in Jacksonville so we reached out to artist Olivia Clark to have her create a mural for us.
About The Artist: My name is Olivia Clark. I am 27 years old living in Atlanta, GA but originally from St. Louis, MO. I am a multidisciplinary artist with a special focus on the intersection of digital art and Black American culture. I am half self taught, half professionally trained, and 100% passionate. I have been designing for over a decade but just recently launched my official design business, Livvy On The Label Creative Company, this year.
About The Mural: When Ashley explained to me that she wanted something that would make the black community in Jacksonville, AL feel welcome and valued, I was really honored to be the one to bring that vision to life. We chose to go with Black Lives Matter, 1. Because they do, of course. but 2. To be a show of solidarity with those around the country fighting to end injustices everywhere. I chose the colors Red, Black, Green and Yellow because these colors are repeated throughout history when representing anything related to black people/art. I also chose to go with geometric shapes to enhance the boldness of the message. This was my first mural, and though it was hard work and I had a steep learning curve to work through, I thoroughly enjoyed creating this! I hope those that come in contact with it feel the love that it was created with!
