A Lucky House

  • Gregory Amanti's new mural is the newest public art installation in the High Desert Mural Festival.

Greg Amanti, the local artist who painted the new mural on the My Lucky House building on Third Street, between Norton and Lafayette Avenues, said he landed on Greek pottery for inspiration after looking for iconic images that would read at a glance.

Amanti said the mural took two full weekends and a couple of weekday nights to complete with the help of Douglass Robertson—the High Desert Mural founder— along with Jason Lovejoy and Heather Crank.

According to Amanti's biography, he's a master mold maker, stone carver and critically acclaimed artist and artisan. Amanti has worked and trained at the two largest foundries on both coasts, and assisted some well-known contemporary artists, including Kiki Smith, the German-born artist whose 1990s work focused on AIDS and gender. Amanti has art featured in the Fort Collins Museum of Contemporary Art, The Miami Photo Salon, The Workhouse and The Redline Art Center. He was also awarded the Photographers Forum Award of Excellence.
