VIDEO: Northwest Insurance Group’s new art, by an artist you might recognize

You might know West Seattle artist Desmond Hansen (above right) best for his signal boxes. He also works on commission – and today we learned one of his latest works is in the Northwest Insurance Group (WSB sponsor) office of John Moore (above left), who shared the photo as well as this time-lapse video:

John explains that he recently asked the artist – who’s also a client of his – to “create a unique piece of art for our office and somehow tie it into our new logo. I am a big fan of his work and sometimes get lost in the depth of his detail and imagery. He approached me with a couple of concepts and I chose the one featured here. He spent 3 days working on it and I couldn’t be happier.” (NW Insurance Group, by the way, is headquartered at 5431 California SW.)

    That is a beautiful piece of art.  We are truly lucky as a community and as a city to experience Desmond’s work.

    It was a real pleasure to paint this for John and he really trusted my artistic vision. I look forward to painting more commission based art for any other collectors who are interested. This was a great one for the books! Find more of my work on Instagram @desmondhansenart

    Beautiful artwork! I can’t wait to see it in person in the office. John and NW insurance group are a community treasure.

    Love seeing Desmond’s work around West Seattle. Is there a way that he could post his signal box art pieces on WSB to give another venue for his impressive work?  

Sorry, comment time is over.
