About the Artists

Chris Chapell

Chris Chappell is a self-taught artist from Louisville, Kentucky working in many mediums with spray paint being his favorite. He has been doing murals for over 15 years, professionally for 8 years. From 80ft tall walls to small garage doors, there’s almost no place he can’t paint a mural. He enjoys painting animals, but he also enjoys bringing other people’s ideas to life and this has become his focus as a commercial muralist.
