Artist Edition: Blue Steel
ARTIST: NITE OWL
We've had the pleasure to get to know a number of incredible artists, and certainly having ChrisRWK behind the wheel of the Artist Edition section has only meant meeting more and more talent. Take Nite Owl, for instance; not only has he been a part of some of our recent shows, his beautiful work is now landing in this section — meaning his vibrant color palette and owl grace a one-of-a-kind Boundless water tower. Blue Steel, features Nite Owl's iconic owl, and old-school lettering on the roof. This is the first of what we hope will be many Nite Owl pieces to come.
Model Kit Style: Medium Water Tower
Medium Used: Acrylic Paint & Markers

Nite Owl is a prolific Oakland-based artist who considers owls to be his medium of choice — whether they appear in his large, colorful murals, stickers on news boxes, or paintings on gallery walls. In their many iterations, his owl characters have become the vehicles for Nite Owl to push the boundaries of geometry and color.
Why owls? Simply stated, Nite Owl wanted a way to emphasize his love of nature while living amidst the urbanity of the Bay Area. Owls have been prized by many cultures around the world for their wisdom, cunning and being guardians of the night time. As urban sprawl continues to take away natural habitat, Nite Owl feels that it is important to remind humanity of the other side of the equation.
