This mural is a collaboration painted in 2014 with New Mexican artist, Shine. Across the top reads "SOLAR" while the bottom reads "RETURN", both in distinct styles of each artist. As an extension of the Earth, the main subject of the wall takes aim at a coal burning power plant in the distance. With pink and blue energy building up around their arrow just moments before release, this wall represents the death of toxic energy production and a return to sustainability.
As an Albuquerque-based street artist, Release works mainly with aerosol, acrylic, latex, and oil-based paints. His work explores energy in motion, humanity's relationship to the earth, its animals, our ancestors, and the universe beyond. Through hidden language in his art he aims to uplift the public realms with natural imagery and geometric style writing.
