Davis Graham’s second mural on Watson elementary after city project at Five Corners

School principals around Chilliwack might start getting a bit jealous once they catch a glimpse of Davis Graham’s newest work.

Graham – aka Pencil Fingerz – just finished a mural on the previously blank streetfront walls at Watson elementary.

It took him about three weeks to create the Watson Wildcats mural complete with a forest and many of the local animals in our area.

He said he added a few specific details for inidividual teachers who asked, such as a turtle and a red bird. Classes were brought out as he worked to ask him questions and learn about what he was putting on their school.

“They know how to make you feel good about your work,” Graham said while finishing up the work last week.

“They’re super nice and they get so excited. It just reminds me why I love doing this sort of thing.”

This isn’t

Graham’s first mural, but it’s only his second. His first was a City of Chilliwack commissioned image representing all that’s great about Chilliwack painted on a wall at Five Corners Park.
