Meet Camerin Nesbit
Artist Camerin “Camo” Nesbit got his start painting sneakers, but nowadays, he’s working on much larger canvases.
Nesbit was instrumental in the revisioning of the Black Lives Matter mural downtown this past June, spearheading the effort to organize (and pay) 25 Black artists to make the finished piece more inclusive. He also managed this year’s mural project at Spirit in Lawrenceville, choosing local artists to create a unified piece that utilized all of their personal styles in a cohesive image. In this episode we ask him about his experiences as a Black artist in Pittsburgh and what changes he would like to see. He shouts out some of his mural locations so you can take a socially distant mural tour and check them out, and he talks about his new project — the Homewood Experience Artwalk.
