Shane Grammer, when street art born from the ashes
Shane Grammer, an eclectic mixed media artist, has made a series of murals in the part of California victim of violent fires in 2018.
Shane Grammer is an eclectic mixed media artist known for working with Walt Disney in Shanghai. Although he deals with all forms of art, street art has proved to be the most effective method to highlight the problematic situation of which California was the protagonist in November 2018: the violent fires permanently devastated the subsoil and the city of Los Angeles.
For this reason, Shane decided to give new life to the ruins of a visibly devastated landscape, to find the beauty among the ashes. On December 31, he began painting murals on parts of objects and homes destroyed by flames.

Day 1 Paradise Camp Fire Mural Project: Here is my first mural. I wanted to paint this truck and we just spent time with the owners who lost their home and three vehicles in the fire. Incredible to get to know them and hear their story. Our goal is to make a difference and bring hope to the Paradise Camp Fire victims. I’m glad I’m going be busy creating artwork because it’s going to keep me focused. We will be here through January 14-18 and I’m going to paint as much as I can! Thank you @hugheykevin and @hugheyphillipsllp for your partnership and support. We are thrilled we have Terence Duffy Photographs to photograph all week as I paint. Thank you @montanashopla For the Montana 94 shadow black and shadow white. . . . . . . . . #shanegrammer #shanegrammerarts #montanashopla #paradisecampfiremurals #terenceduffy #spraypaintart #hugheykevin #hugheyphillips #hugheyphillipsllp #streetart #urbanartworld #urbanarts #urbanart
The mural that has become viral on the web is that of the young woman painting on the fireplace of a house afterward, the whole series has had great resonance on the social level. Shane stated that:
“I’ve always had this deep heart to bring hope and joy through my art with deep and destructive issues”.
Art must transmit a message of hope, which better than the network to be able to communicate it?
