i was hired by Austin’s ‘levitation festival’ to create a hand-painted mural that would serve as a backdrop for the VIP lounge, sitting behind a carpeted area beside the VIP bar, with vintage couches and seating for the “more important” festival goers and musicians that would be performing. the theme was to paint something that was in the style of legendary Peter Max which created a vibe similar to that of the festival. the mural was done on plywood panels, total dimensions 12′ wide & 8′ tall.
the Austin Levitation Festival takes place every spring on Carson Creek Ranch, on the eastern edge of the city, showcasing artists of the ‘psychedelic’ vein and such as the Black Angels, Roky Erickson, and many many others. aside from hours or music spanning the entire weekend, the festival goers can also opt to camp on the grounds which sits next to beautiful Carson Creek.
