Italian City Mural
The “Italian City” mural painted by Ken Wells in 2012 is a unique perspective of an Italian neighbourhood. This painting offers a magnificent glimpse into Italian architecture. An archway creates a window into vibrant neighbourhood. With the theme of a meeting place, standing near this mural can offer a similar feeling of meeting with a dear friend.
Ken Wells painted a number of the murals located in downtown Kamloops. Within many of his murals, the viewer may see a small white dog painted in the scene. This breed of dog, a Welsh Sealyham Terrier, is a symbolic nod toward Wells’ mother, a dog breeder and artist located in the United Kingdom.
After seeing this beautiful mural, you might be interested in checking out more of Ken Wells’ artwork. If that’s the case, you can find more of his work here.
If you’d like to see more of the murals from this back alley art gallery project, you can check them out on our website.
Additionally, the CAP team offers free tours of all the downtown murals. If you’re interested in booking one of these tours, contact the CAP team for more information. We would love the opportunity to share the beautiful art in our city!
