Collaborative Nelson mural continues to evolve

The flamboyant mural across from the campground features work by local artists Sergio and Amber Santos, as well as local residents.

The collaborative mural across the street from the campground continues to evolve.

Nelson resident Krista Lynch loves the collaborative community mural across from the house she shares with Lucas Myers and their family across the street from the campground.

“I love the way it brings people together. I can look out my window and see people walking by taking photos, or just pausing to check little details out,” she told the Star.

“We’ve invited different people to come take part at different times, and it’s been a real neighbourhood collective.” Lynch’s daughters, their cousins and neighbours’ kids all participated.

One of the artists, Sergio Santos, lives across the street from Lynch with his wife Amber.

“We’re both artists and I feel the need to paint on the walls and beautify the ugly grey walls in town. We had this beautiful wall so we realized we could create a constant transformation of colours.”
