‘Archetypes’ By Damon Thompson

Louisville has been blessed with mural artist Damon Thompson’s work on its buildings and walls. One of the highlights is the dual portraits of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor commissioned by sculptor Ed Hamilton on the side of his South Shelby Street studio. Thompson’s solo show at Tim Faulkner Gallery brings his art indoors. It features nearly 40 new paintings consisting largely of celebrity portraits. The power behind the face is the same — “to capture, in an image, the complete range of an individual,” he said, “their emotions, life experiences and truths.”
