Paulina Levaggi | FEATURED Artist
When Cole Valley Partners moved into their new Southwest Portland building, they wanted to create a pleasant outdoor work area with a mural that the whole community could enjoy. They wanted something bright and abstract to bring some color to the neighborhood, making Portland-based Uruguayan artist Paulina Levaggi the perfect choice.
An experienced graphic designer and press operator, Paulina and her partner are newer to the Portland area. After assisting muralist Christian Tellez on his mural at the Portland Mercado, Paulina was determined to create more works of her own. She connected with PSAA to help her secure her first commissioned mural.
“I’m so thankful for PSAA for the opportunity to establish myself as a muralist in Portland. I am very impressed with the smooth and professional communication and connections made throughout the process. It is important to me to be a part of a community that supports local art, cultures, individuality, and diversity and puts actions on these values,” she said.
Paulina wrote in an Instagram post about the special connection her project made between Uruguay and her new home in Portland.
“Last month I painted my first mural in Portland; it was two blocks away from my first apartment in this city so it felt special and in some way an establishment. It felt magical when I learned that the owner of the place was very familiar with Uruguay and had visited multiple times, and that is not very common to find here. I loved leaving my art on this wall.”
