The playful and engaging murals of Jessie and Katey

Jessie Unterhalter and Katey Truhn met at MICA in 2001 and have since started working together, becoming known as Jessie and Katey

The two street artists specialize in large-sized murals and, over time, they realized that their art could not be limited to walls alone, so they began to paint floors, streets, stairs.

There are two fundamental characteristics of their works, the first is the engaging aspect and the second is the playful one. This result is achieved by creating gigantic patterns that take their cue from different and varied textures of fabrics. 

When we try to give shape to the idea of creativity we could think of something very similar to the murals of Jessie and Katey, but you should know that they are not only the result of imagination and improvisation. All their artworks are born from a careful study of the place where they are to be made and their measurements and before painting the surface, the two artists make scale tests, to be sure of the final result. 

No need to say that their works are especially appreciated by children, who enjoy playing with shapes and colors, but also manage to charm the older ones, indeed, are also appreciated by those who do not particularly like street art.
