Iowa Artist Famous For Aerosol Reproduction of Sistine Chapel Turns His Talent to St. Louis History

.

Waterloo, March 2017: Bosnian born Iowa Artist Paco Rosic is still riding the wave of critical acclaim from his daring masterpiece on the ceiling of his family owned fine dining restaurant/art gallery Galleria de Paco in Waterloo, Iowa.

.

Now, he is embarking on his second most ambitious project of his celebrated spray paint career. It is a privately commissioned piece unlike anything else he's done. He is set to highlight the history of St. Louis on the ceiling and walls of 1900 Arsenal St, St. Louis, MO

.

The painting will be 1000-sq ft starting from the very beginning of the iconic Mississippi River town in the mid-1700s taking us through The Great Migration, Lewis & Clark and to the World's Fair and beyond.

.

"For the background I was inspired by the Italian Jesuit painter and architect, Andrea Pozzo (1642-1709) who was one of the finest exponents of illusionist mural painting of the Baroque era," Rosic said.

.

As with his interpretation of the Sistine Chapel in his adopted hometown of Waterloo, Iowa, this project, too, will be created using only aerosol spray paint. No brushes. No tools. Just thousands of cans and and endless talent to turn what is, into what has never been before.
