Second mural by local artist spotted in RiNo to honor health care workers treating COVID-19 patients.
Denver artist Austin Zucchini-Fowler completed his second mural titled "Frontline Fighter" that pays tribute to health care workers who are on the frontlines of this pandemic.
Zucchini-Fowler has kept busy during the month of April as he continues to leave his artistic mark in the city. The difference is this time, he is leaving his stamp in honor of health care workers.
His first mural of the series was completed around Easter, near East Colfax Avenue. The mural, titled "Healthcare Hero" showcases a female dressed in blue scrubs, a white mask covering her face. She sports a pair of fighting gloves and large purple wings.
Zucchini-Fowler painted his latest mural on a wall of the EXDO Event Center in Denver's RiNo Art District. It follows the same theme of the first mural—a health care worker with wings and fighting gloves. This time, the individual appears to be an African-American doctor with a white coat and a stethoscope around his neck. Both murals have a dotted-style pattern that the artist frequently uses in his pieces.
In Zucchini-Fowler's Instagram post of his second mural, he describes it as "another wall of gratitude".
Additionally, Zucchini-Fowler has made his art available for purchase through his website. Both designs in the healthcare series are available as art prints and as T-shirts.
