Visiting mural artists are leaving their mark at Camana Bay.
They are painting artwork in the lead up to the KAABOO music festival, like the one in the Camana Bay car-park, and artist Amanda Lynn says it is no easy task.
“They’re very physically exhausting and intensive. It’s something that you grow to really love, but yes there is all kinds of little tricks and things that tend to go wrong and its all about being patient and problem-solving,” said Ms. Lynn.
That’s not the only mural, another mural in Camana Bay was completed earlier this year by a visiting artist. Ms. Lynn said the murals take a team effort and each artist puts their own inspiration into their artwork.
“The mural over there is actually another artist and I just assisted him, his name is Jet Martinez. On this one I get to paint my own thing,” said Ms. Lynn. “The next mural I’ll be bringing another artist, Ian Ross, and I’ll assist him. I guess when it’s my turn I assist myself,” she added.
Ms. Lynn said she draws her inspiration for her mural from Cayman’s beauty and nature that she’s experienced during her stay.
“The vision behind this design is an ode to Caymanian flora fauna type of imagery. It is going to have birds of paradise and banana leaves,” said Ms. Lynn.
The artists have a 9 to 10-day time-frame to complete each mural. There are questions whether the murals will remain permanent or not.
“My hope of all time is that they’ll stay forever, but you know,” said Ms. Lynn.
