Leon Keer Bellows “Dream Big” in Gainesville.

Leon Keer Bellows “Dream Big” in Gainesville.

“Dream Big” or go home, champ. We don’t need any half-solutions today. This alligator with a hidden nature revealed in its’ shadow appears quite prepared to bellow and bite in Gainesville, Florida.

The Dutch pop surrealist and anamorphic muralist Leon Keer imagined the scene here with a regional animal archetype and took it for a spin. The innovative artist always has hidden magic in his works, even if you don’t realize it the first time you look. So it was an original and slick decision by the team who invited him and his assistant Massina to paint this new 20’ x 7’ mural on a retail store.

Shout out to Iryna Kanishcheva, Deborah Butler and Mary Reichardt for making this project happen.
