Charleston expat artist Patch Whisky scored media attention last week for his custom paint job at a Florida Mellow Mushroom. West Palm Beach’s NBC affiliate followed Whisky as he covered the restaurant in “space, aliens, monsters, you know, rainbow monsters.”
He based his vibrant color scheme on the bright colors that dominate the South Florida landscape. “This is what you would call a dream job,” Whisky said. “This is what I’ve spent my life trying to get to.”
You can see the artist’s work locally behind the shops of Avondale, in Park Circle, and at City Paper HQ.
