Case Mural at Vitality & Verve III: Transforming the Urban Landscape

Over the last two decades, Case has mastered the ability to translate the complex detail, and graceful movements of humans and our hands in photorealistic murals and art pieces. A majority of his work focuses on the hands, as they hold the symbolic meaning of “power” and “unity,” but more so represent the universal language that exists within a hand gesture. An ability to communicate that transcends words, Case not only paints compositions but an emotional language, which all can understand if open to it.

EVOCA1 Mural for Vitality & Verve III: Transforming the Urban Landscape

Elio Mercado, also known as Evoca1, was born in the Dominican Republic and moved to Florida at the age of 11. While growing up his artistic talents were encouraged by teachers, but at the time, the idea of pursuing art was not a privilege that was granted to his family. This is why the figurative painter, street artist, and designer feels that his ability to create today is a gift. In his work he aims to reach a balance of craftsmanship and substance, imbuing his work with an idea or concept that has deeply moved and inspired Elio. His creative process is also an emotional one, and in turn asks more of the viewer than to enjoy the works, but to find empathy within them as well.

Fintan Magee Mural for Vitality & Verve III: Transforming The Urban Landscape

Fintan Magee, a well-known Australian street artist was raised in the arts. The child of two artistic parents, he became involved in the graffiti scene in his teen years and as he grew as a person, grew as an artist to develop an artistic voice as a portraiture painter. Magee finds the people he meets to be the most important aspect of his work, as his work isn’t about self-expression but an expression of the world and the people in it. He is not one to shy away from discussing social issues, such as climate change and the migrant crisis, but embraces the topics as inspiration for his next piece.
