Miss Patti talks with visual artist Brenda Kato about how spirals have influenced her artwork and can be found everywhere in nature. Her 26 foot tall sunflower mural in Jacksonville, Florida is a tribute to Van Gogh’s starry night and sunflower paintings.
Inside the center of each real sunflower is a seed spiral, Brenda painted a fun spiral inside her sunflowers and asked glass artist Mary Allegretti to add her glass beads to add sparkle and texture to the mural. The mural is located on the corner of Edgewood Avenue and Post Street on the back of the J&W Discount building. It’s also a Pokemon stop.
