The first of two pieces installed during the inaugural Unexpected Project, the mural is inspired by stories of the Deputy U.S. Marshals and the infamous outlaws they pursued inside of Indian Territory. In D*Face’s trademark pop-art style, the large piece features a masked pistol-yielding cowboy riding his horse as bullets fly past. In the foreground, a skeletal hand fires a pistol into the distance, symbolizing the dangers that awaited in The Badlands of the Old West.
About D*Face (United Kingdom): One of most prolific contemporary urban artists of his generation. He has been a leading figure in urban art for well over a decade. A contemporary of Banksy, he was at the forefront of the urban art movement, and has had a constant presence throughout its meteoric rise into popular culture. Known for his subversive images, which involve a family of dysfunctional characters whose roles are to shock as well as entertain, his work challenges orthodox thinking and encourages the public to not just ‘see’ but to look at their surroundings.
Downtown street art can be viewed at any time.
Parking is available in the parking lot located in front of the mural, and metered parking is available along Garrison Avenue.
