The beautification of Ballard continues: a house on NW 60th St has been adorned with a two-story mural from local muralist Henry.
Lauren posted the below photo in the My Ballard Group of her home at 2040 NW 60th.
“I’m sure some of y’all have already seen our house, but we (with Henry’s help) added a lil’more color to Ballard!” Lauren writes.
Lauren, a ceramics artist, said their house was just a “big blue box” before the massive mural.
“We went through many ideas from sculptures mounted on the house to repainting it,” she tells My Ballard. “Our family loves Ryan Henry Ward’s art so much (we already have a couple of Henry prints), so we started talking about maybe a small mural to help break up the boxiness of the house.”
She then reached out to Ryan on Instagram, and invited him to check out the house. He floated the idea of a giant Sasquatch, Lauren says, ” but we honestly had no idea how epic it would be!”
The mural took two weeks to complete. “We love everything about it and couldn’t be more pleased,” Lauren says.
