Detour is an all-around creative specializing in large-scale paintings as well as indoor/outdoor murals. His is featured on many walls throughout the RiNo Art District.
My murals occupy the space at the intersection of contemporary art and community. They seek to highlight the heart and soul of their surroundings and provide a unique visual representation of many authentic community members - many of them have never had their likeness incorporated into any form of art. With each mural, there is a relationship-building opportunity that results in a product that is derived from the community.
From interviews and neighborhood tours, to photoshoots and local youth assistants, my murals look to be a part of the community from start to finish. The style that I execute uses splashes of bold and bright colors in an abstract way while still creating a recognizable form that feels familiar with the audience. The colors that are chosen, and the poses that are struck by the subject, are all derived from the surroundings and personality of the community. Simply put, the goal of my work, is to be an integral part of the community.
