Projects > Boomtown Beaver - 1411 Buchanan Mural

Here's a mural painted on the side of Elephant Gallery in North Nashville this spring 2017. A year in the works and it took all of 3 weeks to paint. I had great help from a lot of people. Biggest thanks is to Alex Lockwood for giving me the opportunity.


Here's the proposal...

Title: Boomtown Beaver
Artist: Paul Collins
Location: 1411 Buchanan
Scheduled for Spring 2017

Sunrise breaks upon an ever more populated clearing in the woods. An industrious beaver is carving people from trees in the woods, while nearby an ancient tree watches and waits its turn in horror. Is the beaver carving friends because he has none? Perhaps he is an artist. Perhaps he is an intrigued copycat inspired by the funny humans and their endlessly busy constructing. His hunger is insatiable and work goes on and on...
