Mural Art Project Launches with the Joyful and Nostalgic Works of Artist Gregory Siff in Sedona

December 1, 2020

Colossal

In collaboration with 4AM Gallery, Mural TX presents the premiere of Mural Art Project, an organization that travels the world searching for locations full of wonder and inspiration to document the creations of world-class artists as they engage with the surrounding area. Mural Art Project’s first iteration features Los Angeles-based artist Gregory Siff, who worked at the rugged Bell Rock landmark in Sedona Arizona.

Throughout his body of work—which includes pieces in a diverse array of space like Swizz Beatz’s Dean Collection, Deitch Projects, Santa Monica Museum of Art, Moscow Museum of Modern Art, Soho House New York, Soho House Miami, and Google headquarters—Siff taps into childhood nostalgia with joyful intention. His new project created with Mural Art Project captures these memories of his experience in Sedona with each painted element.

To create “Sky Lines,” Siff worked on a clear canvas, allowing the vibrant renderings to contrast the organic landscape. A short video produced by Mural Texas documents the creation of this iconic piece as the artist channels the energy of the location. Siff adds about his experience:

Once you realize the thing you love to do most, there is nothing more fulfilling than doing it in different environments around the world. To be under the Sedona sky among the most beautiful rock formations that gripped me with internal energy, I was moved to tell a story that was unfolding on this adventure.

“Having spent time in the magical vortexes In Sedona, we knew this was the perfect place for the timeless magic of Gregory Siff. Working with the elements of nature infuses a palpable electricity within the art; breathing life into it, as it takes the invisible field and makes it visible,” 4AM Gallery writes about the project. “This work represents the unseen fifth-dimensional forces that are always with us, carrying us through the journey in the matrix of life.”

Mural TX is releasing six original works and four limited-edition prints—titled “Sky Lines,” “Constellations,” “Crayons,” and “Sunset Soul”—to coincide with Siff’s on-site creation. Presented on technicolor, white, and deep blue backdrops, each print contains a series of black vignettes and is available from the Mural Art Project shop.
