Broken Crow is a large-scale stencil-based mural painting team made up of Mike Fitzsimmons and John Grider. In 2005, while sharing a studio, the two started a dynamic collaborative practice that combines large-stencils with the speed and spontenaety of street art. Together they seek to paint as much of the world as possible.
Broken Crow’s art features various animals and anthropomorphic humanoids in crazy colors and extreme sizes. Through painting they seek to reintroduce wild animals back into urban habitats, writing their own mythologies as they go. To date they’ve painted murals in Minneapolis, St Paul, Duluth, Milwaukee, Baltimore, Reno, Nashville, Dallas, Austin, New York, France, and London. They live and work in St Paul, Minnesota and travel to paint their world whenever possible.
