‘The Whine Train’ from Jeremy Fish for RAD Napa curated by Thinkspace.
“This mural is dedicated to those whiny days we all have when the steam that really gets our train moving is from a belly full of boiling, bubbling emotion.” – Jeremy Fish
The Rail Arts District is coming alive with dozens of murals from internationally renowned artists over the coming years thanks to the generous support of The Wine Train and the Napa Valley Vine Trail.
Our friends over at Juxtapoz recently featured the latest murals from our collaboration with RAD Napa. Flip through the gallery on their website for awesome progress shots and the finished pieces captured by our resident photographer, Birdman photos.

Thinkspace Projects has been curating murals for RAD Napa with support from the Wine Train and Napa Valley Vine Trail. Check out the other murals developed through the project here.
We’re back up north to continue our RAD Napa collaboration with support from the Wine Train and Napa Valley Vine Trail, and this time we are with the mindbending Mars-1. A master of optical illusion and manipulation of dimension and space, Mars-1 creates new galaxies and universes in his work that will be distilled into a microcosm for the rad mural that will be on view for the find folks of Napa. Below is a peek into the mural’s progress thus far this week.

“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.
