Mural Created At Last Year’s Strawberry Festival Installed At B/ IAS
A very large, new mural was installed recently at the Burien Interim Art Space, with some cutting edge graffiti-styled artwork by Sam “Sneke” Swanson and Iosefatu Sua.
The piece was originally painted during last year’s Strawberry Festival, as an on-the-street “competition” between the two artists on SW 146th, across from the skate park.
Here are pics of the artists as they were starting the project on June 28, 2008:
Sneke was born and raised in the Burien area and is now a well-known artist.
Sua is a graphic designer, illustrator and artist based in West Seattle.
Here’s a photo slideshow of the completed and installed mural at B/ IAS, which is positioned west of The Passage and the controversial “Paradigm Shift” naked female sculpture:
