Ryan Henry Ward
I have temporarily run out of photos of Herbert Freeman’s artwork. It may be some time before I am able to post some more. Rather than put this blog on hiatus I have decided to head each post with the work of another of Orlando’s best folk artists: Morgan Steele. I will post Mr. Freeman’s work when it again becomes available.
Mural painting is a form of social activism for Seattle artist Ryan Henry Ward. He uses his bright playful images to inspire cheer and goodwill throughout the city. Several years ago Mr. Ward quit his job and began to live, along with his dog Merlin, in his van. He set himself the goal of painting five murals in ten different Seattle neighborhoods for a total of fifty. As of this month, that number has been far exceeded as he completed his 81st mural on May 6.
