The Muralist

This photostory is about Scott Nurkin, a UNC – Chapel Hill alumnus and local artist. He now owns The Mural Shop and paints mural across the southeast. For a photojournalism class, I followed Scott as he completed a mural at the Ninth Street Bakery in Durham, NC.

“I got an internship with a muralist named Michael Brown at his studio in Carrboro. I stuck with it because it also provided a way for me to pursue music as well. I was able to pick up projects while in town, but could tour with the band.” Nurkin opened The Mural Shop in 2004 and still drums for The Dynamite Brothers.
