Madonna on mural
“My whole past has still been uncharted. I consider myself undiscovered.” David Sanner the artist with paint speckled pants and tank top said that his largest project took six months to complete. Polyester Night Club of San Jose, Calif. hosts an indoor mural 32 by 1,000 feet.
Photo realistic images of pop memorabilia from the Seventies and Eighties are set in paint. Images of Madonna, Farrah Fawcett and rock-band Kiss are all preserved.
Sanner is painting primarily after dark with the use of an overhead projector. He said that the projected image is “almost essential because the really rough stucco” makes it difficult to mark the wall with pencil.
Sanner has painted hundreds of murals nationwide on walls of restaurants, shoe stores and pet stores. The 33 year-old said that he’s lived and worked in nearly all 50 states. Sanner calls his work a way to “express myself and let my spirit show through.”
“It’s kinda like being a rock star without the rock,” he said. “You travel, everyone looks up to you and the children google. It can be quite awesome.
