The man behind many Roanoke murals

Living Local

Roanoke, Va. (WFXR) — John Murrill is a Roanoke-based portrait artist and muralist. His artwork has been featured on the walls of various area businesses and has added vibrancy to historic buildings that line the streets of Roanoke.

It’s surprising that he finds the time, as he is not not only an accomplished artist but an Art Instructor at Patrick Henry High School as well as an Adjunct Professor at Virginia Western Community College.

In this Living Local interview, Murill discusses his current Church Street project as well as the impact local artists are making in the Roanoke Valley during this time of growth and development.
