Guido Van Helten – Unexpected Festival – Forth Smith, Arkansas – USA

Guido Van Helten (Australia) just finished his most recent mural for Unexpected Festival curated by Charlotte Dutoit from Justkids,  this massive set of murals is located in Forth Smith, Arkansas – USA

Here the legends of the old west resonate from its history as a border town with the former Indian Territory now Oklahoma. Suggesting the characters from traditional notions of the American Wild West mythology, I was interested with this work to explore the idea of the American hero and character. Here represented is Ed a Native American from the Apache Tribe, Kristina a young African American woman who runs her own business and Gene Beckham a former employee who worked at this grain elevator for 70 years immediately after returning from the Second World War, retiring last year.
