I am very, very impressed that this is Trek Matthew‘s first public mural– this spectacular fox titled “cicerone//fox” is nearly 3 stories high, and its covered in bold, tribal-inspired patterns from head to tail. The stark and vivid colors stand out crisply, especially as the illustration crosses from the cloudy painted grey-blue on the bottom to the naked concrete above.

The fox was painted in Cabbagetown, a small neighborhood east of Atlanta, GA, and it was a collaboration between Trek Matthews and Living Walls Concepts, which aims to highlight up-and-coming artists through street art. From Matthew’s Behance page:

Over the course of 12 days off and on between school and work, I worked on this 3-story fox inspired by Native American totems and Azteca patterns and shapes. It is overlooking the main road of Cabbagetown, a quirky and small neighborhood of eastern Atlanta. I met great neighbors that brought food & drinks, and had a couple run-ins with Atlanta’s infamous graffiti & street art vigilante.

I love the bold, organic patterns that cover all of Trek’s work– do check out his Flickr for more pieces in the same style. [Via Brooklyn Street Art.]
