My goal was to bring together elements of the restaurant that the mural was on the side of. The owner of Simply Irie said that when people came into the restaurant they felt like they were back in the islands. I tried to reflect that same feeling in the outside. The feeling when you go to the islands is something that can’t be explained. The sun the beaches, the food, the ocean … there are no words… just a Vybe.
