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 http://www.gusisrich.com.

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.
