KANSAS CITY, Mo., May 27, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — EAG Advertising & Marketing (EAG) is permanently displaying original artwork by local artist, Felix Maull at its agency located in the heart of the Crossroads Art District. Maull debuted the one-of-a-kind painting at the 2022 Chancellor’s Luncheon, a Metropolitan Community College Foundation benefit held each winter in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King’s legacy.
“True peace is not simply the absence of tension. It is the presence of justice.”
Martin Luther King, Jr.
As an event artist for The Chancellor’s Luncheon, Maull was tasked with representing Dr. King’s quote in one image. “My process involved brainstorming the best way to do this without saying something I wasn’t trying to say. It came down to having conversations about uncomfortable things,” explains Maull. “Another conversation worth having is about all the police shootings. In the painting, I documented names of those we’ve lost from January 1st to the time of the benefit event.”
Maull’s artwork is on a custom wood panel, on which he used acrylics, spray paint and paint pens. His color scheme is that of the rainbow. Maull says, “The rainbow highlights the message of diversity and inspires hope with bright colors. I hope when people see this it eases the tension of thinking about the conversation. What I want is to be able to have the conversation.”
“I read that Felix’s goal with his art is understanding life and its various forms. He believes the passion to create is inspired and fostered by the people you have conversations with. As a small business in Kansas Cityit’s important to our team and mission to support important causes and facilitate discussions any way we can strengthen our community, from the causes we support to the artwork we display,” says Michele MarkhamEAG President and CEO.
On Thursday, May 5th, 2022Maull visited EAG to hand sign his artwork displayed for everyone who visits EAG to view and inspire conversation.
