Battle of the Pattle Mural for Rainbow Sandals

Drew Brophy mural painting for Rainbow Sandals Battle of the Pattle contest

Drew was commissioned by Rainbow Sandals to paint a Mural, live, at the Battle of the Paddle event in Dana Point.

The mural is 8′ x 16′ and was constructed entirely of wood.  With a lot of help from Steve Inunza, also known as Stevie Wonder, the mural was built on-site and primed, ready to get painted the morning of the first day of the event. At the end of the event, the clever design of the mural structure made it easy to disassemble into 3 separate pieces and neatly placed in our back studio.

Here are photos of the progression of the mural, along with a few other images captured at the famed Battle of the Paddle.
