Murals don’t paint themselves

On the cover of the Dec. 5 Xpress, you printed a picture of a mural of Screamin' Jay Hawkins. You credited the photographer, but not the artist who painted the mural.

The artist who painted the mural is Gus Cutty. He painted it free-hand, entirely with spray paint. He has numerous murals in and around many Asheville businesses and locations. If you are interested in checking out more of his work, visit the website

I find it ironic that you gave a photographer credit for a photo that is almost entirely composed of a mural, but failed to give credit to the artist who composed the mural.
