Check out a recent Charlotte Observer article about CPCC Visual Arts alum Owl.

Owl was a League for Innovation award winner, an Annual Student show award winner and a scholarship recipient at CPCC. They earned an AFA in Visual Art and translated that experience into success as a mural artist in Charlotte, throughout the southeast and in South America.
“They wear masks and use aliases to keep their art and real identities separate. Owl says the aliases remove gender, ethnicity and any other preconceived notions viewers might have, allowing them to just experience the art.”
