Over the course of two weeks in September 2017, Australian-born artist Yvette Vexta created this giant masterpiece. What was once a blank brick wall on the side of co-working space Impact Hub Salt Lake now is a bright and vibrant work of art featuring an owl with constellations painted inside of her. The owl spans five stories tall with the accompanying flourishes painted 150 feet across the wall.

The street art was comissioned by 3 Irons, a “creativity support group” in Utah.
