Lost Luck Co. Workspace MuralLost Luck Co.

Dates painted: October 2020

Location: 200 East 11th Avenue, The Workspace

About: Alayna Sibille is a multi-disciplinary artist working under the studio name Lost Luck Co.  Drawn to creative exploration by lifetime curiosity and inability to sit still, she uses a synthesis of digital and hand processes with a modern-classic, south-west style. Much of her personal work explores outlook through the lens of luck with themes of perseverance, humor and connection. She offers custom art services including brand design and illustration and runs a hand printed gifts and crafted novelty goods online shop.

Wanting to highlight the building’s entrance with modern, bold style imagery inspired by local geography, Alayna created the composition for this mural reflecting on the natural and structural landscape beyond The Workspace building. Simplified into geometric shapes and outline, the elements of scenery pull directionally from the surrounding location and are meant to be viewed from multiple angles. Lost Luck Co.

Little Free Pantry

City of Eugene Cultural Services worked in partnership with Burrito Brigade, local artists from the Urban Canvas roster, local carpenters and community members to create 5 new little free pantries around town. Now, there are 22 Little Free Pantries in Eugene-Springfield.

The Little Free Pantry (LFP) seeks to support an immediate and local need for food and other essential hygiene products. Little Free Pantries bring neighborhoods together and bridge barriers for those who can’t travel long distances to get free food.  The concept started in 2016 when Jessica McClard, a mom in Fayetteville, Arkansas, was inspired by the Little Free Libraries she saw popping up all over her town. There are now 600+ Little Free Pantries around the world. Burrito Brigade started making its Little Food Pantries in August 2018. 

Andrew Bronson pantryAndrew Bronson “Droodle”

Dates painted: June 2020

Location: Missing in action. If you see me please let us know.

About: Andrew has lived in Eugene for two years, and in Oregon for his entire life. He has decorated many things for many people including (but not limited to) skateboards, guitars, bedrooms, walls, cars, and even on one occasion, the inside of a store. About his work in general, and the pantry, he says, “I have a style that most find appealing, mainly due to the contents of my art. I mainly work in a cute, cartoonish variety, featuring different monsters and creatures of my own imagination. I love the outdoors and figured it would be a good subject to build from. I also recognized how special this project is, so I focused on making it welcoming, like every face on the pantry is happy to see you!"

Dates painted: June 2020

Location: 1775 W. 13th Avenue

About: Celeste began painting indoor murals at the age of 16 in her parent’s home. During her time at Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle, she created a variety of other murals in residential and commercial spaces. She has also been commissioned to create art for PABST and The Los Angeles Weekly. She states, "My creative journey has taken me through surrealism, fantasy and abstract. My work is heavily inspired by Salvador Dalí who was the first artists I came across at the age of sixteen. He represented the ’other world’ which I found intriguing and wanted to explore further."  She decided to paint the pantry since more families are finding themselves needing access to food. During COVID-19, many have lost their jobs or have been furloughed putting a strain on household budgets. She says, “I wanted to paint imagery that would make people smile. The ballerina bees and their whimsical nature was the perfect choice.” To view more of her artwork you can visit her website, Creatrix Realms Art Studio. Photo by danavion.com.

It is called Self Organizing Criticality. The sides and back are my depiction of how everything comes together and fits comfortably in the mind when on a spiritual journey. It is called, Psychedelic Vision.” Photo by danavion.com.

I wanted the images to feel welcoming, and spark curiosity. I hope people will smile when they see the box and feel drawn to it. What's inside has the intention of nurturing the community and I wanted the outside to reflect that.” Photo by danavion.com.
