"People & Plants of China" mural for MOBOT, 2012

  • "Kite" - Ink jet & vinyl print
    Portraying plants and people in China, this whimsical landscape was created specifically for MOBOT's Brookings Interpretive Center during the  2012 Chinese Lantern Festival. 
  • ink jet on vinyl mural print (12' x 28')
  • Artists Trent & Kara Smith referenced Chinese art history to influence their design. The work is divided by the artists into line and color. The original line drawings done by Trent are ink on watercolor paper and the playful paint palettes are selected and mixed by Kara. The final piece measures 10x25 inches  to match the scale of the wall for the final print.
