As a follow up to the Warpaint mural he painted for The Unexpected event in Fort Smith, Arkansas last month, D*Face (interviewed) added a companion installation at the east entrance to downtown.

Following up on a mural he painted last year for the The Unexpected event in Fort Smith, Arkansas, D*Face (interviewed) returned for a companion piece. For this year’s edition (curated again by Just Kids), the British artist painted a Indian warrior pulling back on her bow which pairs nicely with 2015’s cowboy themed piece. Entitled Warpaint, this wall will soon be supplemented by an impressive installation (more on that later in Part 2). Photo credit: Just Kids, The Unexpected, D*Face, and @eltipoese.

Recently, we shared with you a mural that D*Face (interviewed) completed for the Unexpected public arts event in Fort Smith, Arkansas. Curated by Just Kids, artists Vhils, Roa (seen above), Maser, Ana Maria, Bicicleta Sem Freio and Askew were also invited in to paint walls in the former real western town’s downtown area. Take a look below at some photos, which also includes another piece from D*Face.
Over the weekend, D*Face (interviewed) completed a mural in Fort Smith, Arkansas, an effort that took five days. Painted for the Unexpected event curated by Just Kids, the piece entitled Badlands features a cowboy astride a horse rendered in the British artist’s comic inspired style. He further states – “This is a bandit’s life, it comes and goes and them the breaks.” Photo credit: Rom Levy (via StreetArtNews). Discuss D*Face here.
