Check Out Lawton’s New Mural of Johnny Depp
We have a new mural in Lawton, Fort Sill thanks to the Shaw Brothers, Terry, and Darry Shaw. You can check it out on the corner of Gore Blvd. and 14th Street on the side of CrossHair Cuts Barbershop located at 1410 W. Gore Blvd. This latest addition to the Lawton mural collection features the many characters of Johnny Depp including: Edward Scissorhands, Captin Jack Sparrow from Pirates of the Caribean, the Mad Hatter from Alice in Wonderland, Sweeney Todd, and Willy Wonka from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
I swung by during lunch today to take a quick picture and there were already people there taking selfies and other photos. I love driving around town and seeing all the murals and every so often a new one pops up like magic. Somehow I always miss seeing them work on these murals and end up seeing them when it's all finished. They're like paint ninjas. One day there's a blank wall, the next a fully painted mural.
If the names Terry and Darry Shaw sound familiar that's because they've painted several of the murals around town. Both are accomplished artists and if you've been in Lawton a while I'm sure you've heard those names before. They are responsible for some of the most incredible murals and are always on the lookout for new places and walls they can paint. I'm a big fan and always look forward to seeing their work.
Makes you wonder what's next? We're lucky to have such talented artists in Lawton, Fort Sill. We're even luckier to be able to enjoy all their hard work and murals while out and about. It really brings a lot of smiles and happiness that's for sure. I'm already looking forward to seeing the next one, whatever and wherever it is.
