He painted eyes and patterns on bright yellow bursts with broad red strokes, playing with the space like a skateboarder doing tricks on a rail. Schoultz adapted his style to other skate parks, and now Winchester has his signature look, a simpler read of his work. A graphic art version of his complex paintings, murals, and installations. A skateboarder himself, the Los Angeles-based artist works with the structure of skate parks designed to simulate random infiltration in public space, which brings street art back to a supportive subculture.

He invited community members to learn and contribute to the work on April 17. Photographer Mikayla Whitmore was there to document the day. Check out her photos below.

Through rubber and bone powder, Alaskan blueberry residue and fleece—along with traditional media—Plural advocates for greater diversity in exhibition fare.

There may not be a harder working artist than Andrew Schoultz. Every time I turn around, he is doing something bolder, bigger, more complex, whether it be through his paintings, sculptures, installations, murals or public art projects. My colleagues and I have worked with Andrew on a bunch of projects over the years, from 3D murals in Austin to a massive skatepark in Miami, and there is such attention to detail and expansive process that has made Andrew one of the most diverse artists working in contemporary art.
