Atlanta artist and SCAD graduate Brandon Sadler has been busy creating a major mural on the wall around Studioplex’s property along Irwin Street. The recently completed mural, according to Sadler, “incorporates an Eastern aesthetic with its Koi fish, symbols of peace and prosperity, and the lotus, which represents enlightenment and divinity. The two symbols are floating through waves of gold. This image represents my own evolution as an artist and person. It represents the potential of the creative community in Atlanta as well as the value of forward thinking. The image will draw viewers in and carry them down the street as if they themselves were carried on the waves.”
In addition to the unveiling of the mural, Sadler will present “Octopus Tempura”, a collection of his new works in the Pavilion at Studioplex during the Art Walk.

“The work for “Octopus Tempura” was created over the past two months, said Sadler. “When working on a concise series I typically focus on a symbol or image to bring my concepts together. The octopus became a strong force of inspiration for me recently and I’ve incorporated it heavily in this body of work.”
