As part of a 2017 art initiative at Destin Commons, shoppers will be able to enjoy a wide range of artwork being produced in the form of murals on open wall space at the Center. Take a photo with the mural and #DestinCommons and you could win a Destin Commons Gift Card!
Daniel Fila, also known as Krave, was the first artist to take the stage. Fila is a multi-faceted artist whose work ranges from mural installations to figurative and abstract paintings, animations and urban sculpture using a range of mediums, techniques and aesthetics. Born in Miami, Fila was influenced by his father, a commercial artist and began sketching as a young boy in order to express himself and distinguish his unique identity.
Fila’s murals have been well-received by shoppers. “The Fisher” and “Blue Crab” make a perfect photo backdrop for both locals and Destin’s many tourist visitors. It’s almost as if they were a part of the artwork in the photo.
