Richard Bolingbroke update: two murals completed

Shipyard artist Richard Bolingbroke updated our earlier posts about his work on a mural at San Francisco International Airport [Harvey Milk Terminal 1, opening June 12] and another in his neighborhood [628 Shotwell St. at 20th St.]:

“Both the SFO mural and my own piece on Shotwell St. are finished.

“Craig Calderwood, the SFO artist, was amazing to work with. (They are non-binary.) Their work is narrative and darkly personal, the flower-covered faces an intimate camouflage of display and defiance. Check out Craig’s website.

“My piece took longer since I decided to paint on the end wall too.

“I can’t say enough about what an amazing experience it was to create art outside in public. The spaciousness changes how things are seen and it was such a thrill to work at this scale.”
