Dubuque Street Art - Wild Rose

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 21 January 2019 in Art & Design and Portfolio.

“Wild Rose” was inspired by Iowa’s national flower. Artist Diana Contreras wanted the colors to compliment the cityscape with the reds, purples, and pinks. “Wild Rose” is a beautiful confident woman who's not afraid to stand out. As she turns around, her vibrant hair flips as she looks at the viewer in the eyes. The same beauty that was offered to Diana during her stay in Dubuque, she wanted to leave behind something just as beautiful! This is her largest and most ambitious mural to date.

The scale is impressive, though I find the comic book style of treatment with the huge eyes and the pouting lips somewhat cloying. Well captured though, with the scissors clipping a lock of hair in the bottom left
