Born in 1981, Gina Elizabeth Franco is a full-time artist living and working in North Carolina.
Currently, Franco’s practice focuses on painting murals and other public art. From a very young age she doodled on anything and everything. As an adult her obsession with doodling has evolved into her picking up a can of spray paint and expressing herself on walls.
Franco’s art varies from project to project. These days she can be found interacting with the public, focusing on place-making projects that activate walls and underused spaces. The goal of these projects is to encourage residents and visitors to interact with the space and share their experience via social media.
Aside from her featured works in her hometown of Greensboro, NC, Franco has recently been awarded public art commissions for Krispy Kreme Corporation, Durham Food Hall and the city of Jacksonville Florida.
