Stunning murals flourish across buildings, and dazzling canvas prints hang proudly throughout the city of Fort Wayne, Indiana. The artist responsible for these outstanding works of art is Theopolis Smith III, who is more typically known by the alias “Phresh Laundry.”

Not originally from Indiana, the artist was born in St. Louis, Missouri, but frequently jumped from city to city due to his dad’s business affairs. He eventually landed in Fort Wayne, through his father’s travels and instantly fell in love with the city and its people. Before long, Smith was being commissioned to curate extraordinary pieces for the city to marvel at.

His work follows the blazed trail of Fashion Designer Elsa Schiaparelli and is rooted in the fantastical concept of surrealism.

When you walk along S Tryon street in Charlotte, North Carolina the neon sign of Whitney Austin’s Gallery of Art greets you along with window displays of stunning, afrocentric paintings, drawing you in to further explore the eccentric, bioluminescent-like artwork created by Whitney Austin.
