“I’m excited to see the ArtRepublic artists working in the city I grew up in … Having always dreamed of our walls being covered in monumental artwork I see that ArtRepublic is progressively helping to make these dreams come true. I’m honored to be included in the line-up of so many inspirational artists.” North Florida based Artist Shaun Thurston.
