VISUAL ARTISTS PRESTON PANNEK AND ADRIENNE CREASEY DONATE TEN MURALS TO THE DEEP ELLUM NEIGHBORHOOD

House of Pannek continues the 10 Murals Project with playful interpretation of pop culture, on his own dime

(DALLAS, February 2018; source: CultureHype) – Deep Ellum resident and visual artist Preston Pannek and his girlfriend and business partner Adrienne Creasey will donate ten free murals to Deep Ellum through their company House of Pannek. Deep Ellum business owners turn over exterior walls to Pannek and Creasey for playful interpretations of pop culture icons and cult classic references. In efforts to create more public art for Deep Ellum residents to enjoy, the artists behind House of Pannek continue their sixth of ten murals to go up in the area, a kaleidoscope tribute to Fear and Loathing featuring Porky Pig and Daffy Duck and over a dozen layers of paint creating a holographic effect in the sun. Patrons can pick up multifaceted crystal glasses from Wizards Vape Shop while supplies last to view the mural in full effect at the corner of Main and Hall. 

“Preston has lived in Deep Ellum most of his adult life and wanted to give back to the community,” said Creasey. “He had the idea of painting Deep Ellum and giving back to the neighborhood that helped shape him. Creating ten free murals for the neighborhood of Deep Ellum felt like the perfect opportunity for him to give back while creating an awareness and growth of the art culture, specifically murals.”  

Eye-catching murals aren’t the only thing House of Pannek aims to give back to the community. The creative duo has been busy putting together a plan to help local artists thrive in the Dallas-Fort Worth scene. Pannek and Creasey plan to bring on a curated collective of local artists for commision work across the Metroplex, hoping to connect creatives with local businesses as a way to bring murals of all sizes to the city of Dallas. 

With each mural in the 10 Murals Project, the duo aims to kick it up a notch by going bigger and to the extreme. Currently on view are murals #1 and #2 at 3720 Canton St., a Pulp Fiction parody titled “Deep Fiction” and Betty Boop-Twiggy remix with hundred dollar bills painted into it titled “Twiggy Boop”; #3 at 2925 Elm St. featuring Mario and Luigi in a Ferris Bueller’s Day Off parody titled “Mario Brothers Day Off”; #4 at 2911 Main St. featuring Daffy Duck in a Clockwork Orange parody titled “Clockwork Duck”; #5 at 3000 Elm St. featuring a play on The Wolf of Wall Street titled “Wolf of Bitcoin”; and #6 at 3100 Main St. titled “Fear and Loathing in Deep Ellum”. 

The project will culminate in a large-scale art show featuring work by Pannek and Creasey alongside other House of Pannek artists at creative multi-use space Deep Ellum Art Co. this May. More details to be announced. To keep up with House of Pannek and the remaining four murals, follow them on Instagram here.
