Mural by Preslicka

DSC_0852_1.JPG

 

Greg Preslicka designed and painted an outstanding mural in the Raven Stream media center. The PAC commissioned this New Prague graduate to create a mural to liven up the space and bring the magic of reading into full view. The artwork shows how books can take you around the world on exciting adventures. Greg has been creating large scale murals for the past six years but also, works as an artist doing design and illustration. He loves mural work because he enjoys the ability to get messy, move around and paint. He began painting murals by the prompting of his children. He started by painting all five of his children’s bedrooms.  Through the excitement of beautifully painted bed rooms, others became interested in his work and hired him to do other large scale works. Shortly after he began he was commissioned to paint a large painting in a YMCA.  Leading up to this very large job he practiced in his own garage which is now decorated with palm trees and monkeys. During his two weeks at Raven Stream he has taken the time to teach every class about his artistic process. He has also graciously answered many inquisitive art questions from students and staff. The overall experience has been wonderful and we are delighted to be able to enjoy this beautiful mural for many years to come.
