Atlanta native and resident of Philadelphia, Phillip Adams holds a Master’s degree in Fine Arts from Philadelphia University. He is sensitive to western mass culture and the dehumanisation linked to our consumer society. His mural art esthetic is anamorphic, as much in the classical trompe-l’oeil as in a contemporary and playful style that he is known for. He has more than 10 murals to his credit.
David Guinn was born and currently lives in Philadelphia. His architectural training influences his style that resembles a reproduction of pixel images. The cubist movement inspires him, especially Paul Klee. Guinn takes into account the immediate surroundings of the mural, the urban landscape, the colours and the residents as essential elements of his creation. He creates more than 20 murals through the United-States, one of which is 150 feet in length at the Philadelphia International Airport. David Guinn is one of the important players in the North American mural art sphere.
David Guinn and Phillip Adams used the fireworks, the Mount Royal tamtams and the crowds of festival-goers to capture summer in Montreal. Hot Summer Night is another mural in the series The Montreal Seasons located at Habitation Jeanne-Mance. The two first murals created in 2009 depict contemporary landscapes : the first, an autumn day ; the second, a dramatic winter scene. The common theme used in all works of art at the Habitations Jeanne-Mance (CHJM) is nature and vegetation. This artistic guideline was developed with the collaboration of the CHJM as part of a global improvement plan that aims to position the complex as the green heart of the downtown area.
