Dancing Tigers

Tanner Wilson's avatar Tanner Wilson

For this year's ArtPrize Murals, I will be painting two dancing tigers on this specific shipping container. On one side, there will be a tiger dancing in the daytime amongst the flowers and tall grass. This side will have warm colors with bright accents. The other side will feature a tiger dancing in the night in cooler colors underneath the moon and stars. I am pulling a lot of influence from ancient Korean paintings in which the tiger is a common trend not only in mythology, but in folklore as well. In many cultures, but especially Korea, the tiger is regarded as a guardian that drives away bad spirits. There is a struggle within the tiger due to it constantly being hunted and regarded as a beast - he has been through a huge amount of trials and tribulations. With this piece I want to instill a sense of courage and strength within anybody who views this shipping container mural. My hope is that this mural eases your mind and helps you focus on what is important in your own life.
