Gibbs Rounsavall

About Gibbs Rounsavall

Based out of: Louisville, KY
Gibbs Rounsavall is an abstract artist exploring perceptions of space through the relationships of line, shape, and color. His precise use of geometry creates movement, and carefully selected colors elicit memories for viewers. His work can be found in public and private collections worldwide.

About the Mural

Vibrant diagonal stripes brighten the busy intersection at 1st Avenue South and 20th Street South. On the northeast corner, at 1957 1st Avenue South, Gibbs Rounsavall’s celebration of Florida colors cuts across the concrete wall with strips of blues, pinks, yellows, greens and purples.

The mural faces west, 15 feet high and 57 feet long. The left side of the wall has two industrial garage-door openings, covered now in thick, angled stripes of blues, pinks and greens.

The right half of the mural has two glass windows, surrounded by thin angled strips of light and dark gold, white, and lighter and darker blue, turning into deeper blues, green and purples as they spread further from the center point.

The patterns of the stripes are full of motion. On the left half, starting at the top, the blues and greens and pinks and purples start out very fine and grow wider as they plummet toward the bottom, like a triangular fan.

On the right half of the mural, stripes of white, yellow and gold, and light blue and deeper blue start out narrow at the bottom, and grow wider as they shoot toward the top, like an abstract sunrise.

The sunrise on the right and the sunset-colored fan on the left fit together like a puzzle. That leaves triangular spaces on the upper left and bottom right, filled with wide rich-colored stripes, spreading diagonally off the edges of the mural, as if the colorful pattern continues beyond the limitations of the wall.

Gibbs Rounsavall calls this mural, A New Day. An artist based in Louisville, he chose Florida colors for this bright, bold mural.

Gibbs describes himself as a “geometric abstract painter.” He values perception, the experience that viewers get from looking at his work. For Gibbs, his work combines his love of visual arts and music.

As he explains, one color by itself is flat. But many colors combined “can create steady rhythms, soaring harmonies – and visual melodies.”
