“Snip, Clip, Cut”,
25’ x 8’ mural by Ysabel Flores, 2018
In my paintings, I usually stick to more of a realistic style, but this project challenged me to come up with a more funky design to fit the overall theme of the building.
It was a fun break to changeup my composition to something that combinedmy style with my love of color and line art. In order to make the mural more representative of the business inside the building, I chose to paint a selection of vintage barber shop tools over a colorfully striped background to subtly hint at the lines in a barbershop pole. I'd like to call it: "Snip, Clip, Cut".
I also want to thank the following people for all the help and input they gave me in achieving my goals: Jennifer Lindquist, my mom Gigi Flores, and my friend Marjorie Murphy.
