Phoenix artist Thomas ‘Breeze’ Marcus tells stories of indigenous culture
Take your time looking at a Breeze mural. His work is full of exquisite details that will make you want to take a second look.
Thomas Marcus, also known as Breeze, spends days creating intricate murals across the valley to honor and highlight his native culture.
Marcus is the mural painter behind several significant works in the valley, including a 30 meter piece in southern Phoenix entitled “Ban and Muhadag Do’ag”.
The mural depicts a pink coyote with bright yellow eyes surrounded by thousands of cool coils and geometric shapes reminiscent of the baskets of his ancestors Marcus’ Tohono O’odham and Akimel O’odham.
It took Marcus seven days to complete the mural which is quick for one of his pieces. It is located at 3902 S. Central Ave. in Phoenix.
Breeze and El Mac:The new mural in downtown Phoenix is about depicting the “original people of this valley”.
