Art Walk, A Canvas of Expression is coming to Town Center at Disney Springs this month, inviting viewers to connect with the works of local and international artists through ever-changing murals.
Pulling together storytelling, expression, emotion, and culture, the murals will reveal “the individual style and voice of each artist,” Emma Martin wrote in the Disney Parks Blog.
Art pieces will be continually added over time, expanding the Disney Springs Art Walk and keeping it new and fresh for guests.
The Disney Parks Blog revealed the first four artists will be Laci Jordan, Chad Mize, Stacey Aoyama, and Eric Tan.
Laci Jordan – Multi-disciplinary designer and creative director, Laci’s artistic expression focuses on pop culture, and raising the visibility of black women in particular. Her mediums are graphic design, illustration, web design, photography, and more.
Chad Mize – Multimedia artist, designer, and muralist, Chad’s art is filled with humor, contemporary cultural images, and detailed expression. A native of New Orleans, Louisiana, he is now a resident of St. Petersburg, Florida.
Stacey Aoyama – An illustrator for Disney Consumer Products, Stacey attended the Art Center College of Design and, while she had many career ambitions (ballerina, orthodontist, astronaut, and more) her passion for art became her calling.
Eric Tan – Inspired by “The Jungle Book” at the tender age of three, Eric became and artist and has worked as a designer at Disney Consumer Products for more than 20 years.
New artists and their works will be added all year long. Watch for additional pieces as they become part of the Art Walk, A Canvas of Expression.
