Mural Monday: Dulk in Denver

We are back with another Mural Monday. The Spanish street artist, Dulk, recently created a mural in Denver, Colorado for the street art festival, The Crush. The brightly colored, highly illustrative piece has a contemporary take on the classic story "The Tortoise and the Hare." One of Aesop's Fables, the story describes a race between two seemingly unequal partners. Dulk's version places the characters in a Colorado-like setting, surrounded by purple clouds while wearing fun accessories.

The Crush celebrates creativity, culture, and urban beautification by enhancing the community through the arts. The festival aims to reflect the diverse voices and talents of the community. The Crush is a collaborative effort with the River North Art District (RiNo) and has established a new definition for art and how the public can interact with art in the city of Denver. The Crush has the goal of creating a positive impact in the community as they believe "public art is a catalyst for safety, cleanliness, curb-appeal, creativity, growth, business interest, and investment." Established in 2009, The Crush is the largest independent urban arts festival in Denver. The Crush was founded by the graffiti artist Dread.
