Thinkspace Family artist Dulk recently completed a new mural in Wittenberg Germany for Kura Fest. The mural titled “Where We Used to Scream” addresses the struggle between life and death that is the nature of all things. The salmon, which is represented in the crest of Wittenberg, symbolizes the desire to return to a place of peace in order to continue a legacy, despite the peril that awaits.
Dulk currently has two new pieces on view at the Mesa Contemporary Art Museum and one at the Fort Wayne Museum of Art. To view all available work by Dulk, visit the Thinkspace Gallery website.

Thinkspace Family artist, James Bullough just completed a beautiful mural ‘Pania of the Reef’ in Napier, New Zealand as a part of the Pangeaseed Foundation’s Sea Walls project. The mural was inspired by local Maori folklore depicting Pania a fierce protector of the waters off the coast of Napier. Read about James’s experience painting the mural in his own words below,
“I had the great honor of meeting with some of Pania’s direct descendants in the city of Napier and other local Maori historians and speak with them about the best way to depict Pania and tell her story through my mural. In working with Pangeaseed Foundation and the Sea Walls project on this mural, it was also my honor to highlight a pressing ocean conservation issue for which I chose to speak about, the acidification of our oceans. Due to man-made climate concerns, specifically, the rising CO2 levels in our atmosphere, the acidity levels of our oceans have risen and continue to rise at alarming rates killing our reefs and the delicate ecosystems around them worldwide. To illustrate this I have depicted Pania floating defiant and hopeful over her reef despite the fact that it is void of all life and she herself is dissolving from the dangerously high acid levels.”
We’re always amazed by the gorgeous work Bullough creates and can’t wait to have him as a featured artist in our upcoming return to Detroit for Inner State ‘LAX/DTW: Part II’ opening June 30th.

“Fresh from the opening of his Lisbon solo show, Felipe Pantone spent four days in Napa Valley working on his latest mural for the RAD Napa project (curated by Thinkspace). Following on the heels of the Bezt x Natalia Rak piece from few weeks ago, the wall from the Argentinian-born artist is the second addition to the upcoming art district in the area.
Known for his digital-based imagery filled with strict geo objects, bright colors and monochromatic elements, Pantone created another public piece that appears as a glitch in an otherwise serene surrounding. Working in much different conditions than the artists before him, he battled the hot sun for four days in order to complete the piece titled Chormadynamica. Conforming to the brick wall structure, he created an effective piece that changes with the observer’s point of view and will surely be exceptional to experience from a moving train.” – Arrested Motion
Organized by Napa Valley Vine Trail, Napa Valley Wine Train and members of Napa’s local arts community, this project aims to transform the existing Cross-Town Commuter Path into a cultural corridor providing an experiential and educational trail celebrating Napa Valley. We here at Thinkspace are honored to be a part of it.
UP NEXT THIS APRIL for RAD Napa:
We’re excited to share the completed mural ‘Chromadynamica’ from Felipe Pantone for the RAD Napa mural project in Napa, California curated by Thinkspace Gallery. The project is sponsored by the Wine Train and the Napa Valley Vine Trail.
