Fort Collins, Colorado artist Chris Bates recently completed his newest mural in Downtown Fort Collins at the recently opened Exchange. The black and white mural depicts Fort Collins born, Disney legend Harper Goff. Titled “The Life of Harper Goff” this painting tells the life story of Goff inside of his portrait using a technique that Bates dubs “finetooning”. This mural is the first of it’s kind and uses a barrage of line work and detail to build an impressive piece of art that serves as art piece, historical document and local landmark.
Kind Dub documented the 100 hour project in a mini documentary. Go and see the piece of in person at 200 North Pine street at the intersection of Harper Goff Alley and Old Firehouse Alley, which also serves as the main entrance to the soon to be opened Crooked Stave Taproom.
