Best Muralist to Tag Charleston

David Boatwright

Staff Pick

David Boatwright is best known for quietly painting memorable murals around town, from Hominy Grill’s grits-pushing gal to the summer scene on the side of GrowFood Carolina. But last April, he hosted a rare retrospective exhibit at the City Gallery at Waterfront Park. Though not as big as his murals, the paintings in the show were quite large and included older works and a new series exploring politics and culture in the South. “It’s about sex and beauty and humor and politics. That’s about as specific as I want to get,” the painter told us. We doubt we’ll see him in a gallery setting again anytime soon, but luckily there are plenty of his works scattered around Charleston that we can enjoy every day.
