Detour (Thomas Evans) is a Denver street art muralist known for large-scale, abstract portraits of influential people in his life. Check out this video to learn more about Detour and his colorful murals in Denver’s RiNo (River North) Art District.

While retaining its industrial character, RiNo is home to many urban food halls and craft breweries on the Denver Beer Trail. RiNo is a hotspot for artists, foodies and designers with street art murals around every corner. Every September, Detour and other muralists from all over the country take over RiNo during CRUSH Walls, a weeklong, free public event celebrating street art that has been responsible for curating hundreds of murals in RiNo over the past decade.
