The the two artists were brought together by Amy Parry Projects to create two murals inside the Philips Arena/Hawks stadium. Both John and Stacie were familiar with each others work, but had never actually met until the first walk-through at the arena.
The artists decided that in order to prep for the project and get to know one another, they would work together on a smaller scale. This pre-collaboration has resulted in a variety of exploratory works that meld together Tindel's graphic imagery and southern vernacular, with Rose's gestural marks and abstract geometry.
The murals are part of an entrance section of the stadium (unofficially dubbed "the people's entrance") closest to the MARTA station. The concept behind the design revolves around the build up of expansive energy in anticipation of a spectacle. This, in combination with Atlanta attitude and southern vibes are what will welcome people as they enter the Philips Arena.
John Tindel Artist | Designer | Founder of The Creative Life
An early pioneer of the Atlanta Art Scene, Tindel's work tackles social, economic and creative issues with his unique imagery, highly admired wit, and hunger for what he describes as the mega-painting.
Stacie U. Rose Artist | SUR Studios
An artist who has traveled the world and landed in Atlanta to discover that the south is so much more than an accent, Rose's vibrant abstractions combine geometric space with gestural marks that embody grace, freedom, optimism, and the dark reality that lies beneath.
