Forest For the Trees Project Inspires Portland Murals

Wednesday, August 26, 2015

 

Mural by Joram Roukes

A compilation of over 30 artists from around the world are painting 20 murals throughout the city of Portland in a special event titled, Forest For The Trees, a non-profit project committed to the public arts in Portland.

Participating artists include Insa, Low Bros and Joram Roukes, as well as local attendees Josh Keyes, Michael Salter and J.Shea. 

Portlanders are not only able to watch the artists as they paint the town, but Forest For The Trees are also currently hosting a series of events throughout the week as part of the celebration. The artists will paint plain walls all over Portland, including SW Washington Street, SE 11th Avenue, SE MLK Boulevard and SE Pine. For a complete listing of locations visit forestforthetreesnw.com/locations.

Forest For The Trees is a festival that connects local and international artists with the Portland community to produce free expression, collaborative street art. It was originally established in 2013 and was inspired from the phrase, “they can’t see the forest for the trees,” which the creators define as the inability to see the larger picture because one is solely focused on the here and now and what is right in front. Forest For The Trees hopes to inspire people to see the art that lives in Portland and through that, inspire people to see the bigger picture. 

The Festival runs until Saturday, August 29. For more information, click HERE
