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