Fine Art Meets Concrete

The creators of The Process, Parker and Ben Muri, stumbled upon El Kamino, a painter who paints with more than just brushes.

The creators of The Process, Parker and Ben Muri, stumbled upon El Kamino, a painter who paints with more than just brushes. They followed him on his next installation, a beautiful showdown between a snake and an eagle, and captured the beauty of the graffiti artist in the act of creation. This is what they discovered – an artist in the middle of the fine art realm of painting on canvas and the illegal realm of painting on concrete.



*RVA does not condone graffiti artists, but we sure as hell appreciate the art some of them create.







“The Process” is one of RVA Magazine’s premiere video series of short documentaries in which we spotlight Richmond artists and the creative influences, techniques and thoughts that fuel them.
