Re-Birth of A Warrior: ServiceMaster Mural
This vibrant mural was created in partnership with ServiceMaster as part of UAC's Blight Out program, which aims to activate and transform blighted areas through public art. Artist Jamond Bullock, also known as Alive Paint, was chosen to create his Re-birth of a Warrior design for the mural, which features community symbols and sites. The artist stressed how important it is that his designs are relevant and connected to the neighborhoods where the murals are going to be located.
ServiceMaster, a for-profit company founded and headquartered in Memphis, chose Bullock’s design for the building across from Greater White Stone Baptist Church in South Memphis. The company provided volunteers to help the artist with the mural’s installation on a day of service as part of its wish to be a good corporate neighbor and care for the city where it is based and where its employees live and work.
Along with 150 ServiceMaster volunteers, Bullock created a dynamic and colorful mural to enhance the space across from the church. He started by sketching the design on the building with the colors labeled and then asked the volunteers to help do the base colors and fill-ins.
