Osceola Arts’ The Time for ARTisNOW Murals Project began its first work of 2022 at Valencia College’s Osceola Campus on Monday and will feature artist Don Rimx of Orlando who will be painting on Osceola Campus’ (Building C) in Kissimmee through April 17!
If you’ve strolled or driven through downtown Kissimmee over the last year you’ve most likely seen the beautiful murals that now adorn buildings throughout the community. Osceola Arts has been changing the downtown landscape one piece of work at a time, and with the current mural project at Valencia, their ARTisNOW Murals Project is expanding its territory.
The current artist Don Rimx’s unparalleled artistry sets him apart from the rest. As a classically trained fine artist, graffitist, grand scale muralist, and new school tattoo artist, Don does it all. Originally from the beautiful island of Puerto Rico, he moved to Brooklyn in 2009 and is now living in sunny Florida. City life had a profound effect on his works of art. Through the use of intricate lines, wood and brick elements, and rich color treatments, Don Rimx has comprised breathtaking skeletal structures exploring the synthesis of man and his city.
Don has participated in national and international urban beautification projects including Los Muros Hablan New York & Puerto Rico, Beck’s Urban Canvas Miami, Muraleo Puerto Rico, Fiesta de Colores Ecuador, and Beyond Walls Lynn where he was given the key to the city for contributing to the local culture. He has realized more than a dozen murals across the United States. In 2018 he created a beautiful mural for the Starbucks on Miami Beach. And more recently, he painted the façade of the new Electronic Arts building in downtown Orlando’s Creative Village. To view murals created by Don Rimx go to https://donrimx.com.
