Street Art Revolution Brings Hip Hop Counter Culture To Norton Museum’s “Art After Dark” On July 6th

Street Art Revolution is a mural arts /public art collective initiative. The ‘revolution’ is to change the paradigm of what is considered art in this community.

Interactive Mural Workshop

Bulks
Street Art Revolution Pool Artist and Muralist

I’ve been drawing and painting for as long as I can remember. My mother owned an art gallery for 25 plus years. Growing up in that kind of environment, I was introduced to many different kinds of art. We moved to south Florida in 2000, where I began to pursue my passion for graffiti art at the age of 14 and I have not stopped since. I’m always looking for new ways to create and push my work to new levels.  https://www.instagram.com/bulk_styles/

Much of the original travel route from Detroit to Miami, Dixie Highway,  has been absorbed into modern routes.  A new piece of Florida history is being created on a section of Dixie Highway in Hobe Sound! Highwayman artist Jimmy Stovall is lending his vision and talents to Hobe Sound Murals Project #18, on the Jenkins Landscape building at 12260 SE Dixie Hwy, one-half mile south of Bridge Road.

Jimmy’s work reflects his continuing interest in preserving the vision of the pristine Florida he remembers from his youth, and the countryside vista in this mural includes two of his signature motifs – a serene distant horizon and a radiant Poinciana tree. This genre is also location-appropriate, as three generations of the Jenkins family have provided idyllic and design balanced landscapes for over 56 years.

 

Business owners Harold and Susan Jenkins, who have long admired the beauty and scenic topics of Highwaymen paintings, are proud to sponsor this one-of-a-kind mural on their newly renovated building façade.

 

 

Mural #8 at GFWC Women's Club

Hobe Sound Mural #8 at GFWC Women’s Club “Pillars Of The Community”

 

Jimmy is one of “The Highwaymen” painters, from the Ft. Pierce area, who sold their Florida landscape paintings door-to-door and out of their vehicles along local roadways from the 1950s through 80s. The Highwaymen finally achieved recognition in the 1990s, when critics began to praise the uniqueness of their folk art, fast oil painting style and self-promotion techniques.

 

 

Hobe Sound Mural #3  "Ocean Jazz"

Jimmy holds the unusual distinction of being known as “The 27th Highwayman.” Although he is acknowledged by his peers as a true member of the group, he was in Miami after Hurricane Andrew and was not available to be interviewed for what would become a book about 26 painters of this ‘outsider art’ style.

 

 

Hobe Sound Mural #13 "Four Seasons"

Hobe Sound Mural #13 “Four Seasons”

 

Jimmy is the last painter who was personally taught his craft by one of the founding Highwaymen, Alfred Hair, who had been mentored by the well-known A.E. “Beanie” Backus. Both Hair and Backus have been inducted into the Florida’s Artists Hall of Fame.  This mural will also be the very first publicly accessible exterior mural by a Highwayman.
