ABOUT THE ARTIST: Ryan ‘ARCY’ Christenson is known for his paint-splashed style of large-scale street art and has been defining his skills for over a decade. In 2015, ARCY announced his inaugural North American live event mural tour, where he took his skills on the road, spray painting 8’ x 12’ live event walls in front of thousands of onlookers in many of the largest cities across the nation. Since then, ARCY has created hundreds of live murals and permanent large scale works throughout North America, Australia, and Europe. ARCY has worked for the likes of The Smithsonian Institute, Major League Baseball, and America’s National Parks Service.
During ARCY's early touring, he visited the Walt Disney Hometown Museum and developed what would blossom into an amazing relationship over the years. Now, Marceline, Missouri is his home away from home, and he stops in each time he passes though Main Street USA.
