Artist: JT Daniels
JT Daniels is a KC native who began painting murals in 2013, where he was given his first chance to lead a small group of youth through their first community based mural project. Due to the success of his first mural, in 2014, he assumed the role of Quality Assessor for a local mural arts program while simultaneously working as a youth mentor in Jackson County. While combining art, mentorship & engagement, JT's work has made room for him to share his artistic voice. His work depicts overlapping faces, words and characters that are a visual reference of all the people he's talked to and shared spaces with over time. Some of these spaces include ARTSKC, LIVE KC, Urbana KC, Art in the Loop & The KC Streetcar.
