Parker, who’s been an artist all his life, said he wanted to give Beyoncé a mural for more than three years now as a “thank you for her inspiration,” and when she announced her “Renaissance” album, he knew it was “time to strike.”
“I’ve been wanting to do this for 3+ years now, and when the album was announced, I knew it was time to strike. I pushed it this close to the concert because I wanted to use very fresh ‘Renaissance’ imagery,” Parker said. “I mainly wanted to thank her for the inspiration, the great music and blessing our city with a tour date!” he added.
Parker dedicated six days to creating a stunning mural, pouring his heart and soul into every brushstroke. The result? An awe-inspiring masterpiece that he considers the most fulfilling accomplishment of his life.
“Six of the longest, hottest, most rewarding days of my life,” he shared. “I worked the first four days from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. the next morning to avoid the busy traffic. I had three mock-ups I rough drafted and changed [them] as the wall and the art told me it should be. Cause at the end of the day, the art kinda tells me what needs to happen to make the composition work.”
