Hector Ruiz and DOSE in St. Francis
If you didn't spot DOSE while he was working the mural at St. Francis (pictured above), you might have seen his bold, bubbly signature grace the murals he's done on (the now-closed) Verde, behind Barrio Cafe, and the mural he's currently finishing up on the side of Deportes America with Gennaro Garcia.
Ruiz has been running a similar schedule in the gallery circuit and has been helping a few of his friends (DOSE and Garcia included) on mural projects around Phoenix.
The two were approached by St. Francis owner, Aaron Chamberlin, who wanted the two to collaborate on a large-scale project for the restaurant's second floor. The result's a bright collage of spray paint and acrylic in the shapes of clouds, anatomical cows, and overlapping patterns and signatures.The mural was unveiled last Friday -- read more about the mural and St. Frances over on our foodie sister blog, Chow Bella.
