Golden Child with Da Big Gunz

This mural was hand-painted with brushes and buckets. The image is taken from a canvas piece that Tampa artist Princess Smith painted some time ago. The young woman in the design is her daughter.

Princess likes to create realistic, positive images for “melinated people.” Positive representation is important to her as an artist.

Princess was very moved by all the positive feedback she received as she was painting. She told stories of people driving by in tears because they were so touched by her work. She welcomed many artists who stopped by to help her paint, regardless of their experience level.
