Rhonel’s Journey With Checkr
As an artist I am always thinking about the next series or subjects to create either for myself or community. I recently had the opportunity to work with Checkr on a project that really stood out to me.
Checkr is a company that does background checks for employees globally. I connected to the company through my art show at a local gallery, where I met a woman who curates all the art in the Checkr building located at 120 Kearny Street. She asked me to create a 6’x12’ mural on canvas that would be created in my Tapeography style, iconic imagery of San Francisco, and the diversity of Checkr.
After starting the mural we decided that I would complete most of it in my art studio and enlist the employees for the balance of the painting!
I created a video announcing that I was creating a mural and could use the support of the team at Checkr to complete it at a pre-party! This is where the mural really came to life, as the employees gathered to paint, chat, connect and felt valued that their creativity was needed to accomplish their mural. They could not believe what was created and each employee felt like a piece of them was part of the company through their mural.
Everyone could not believe what they had accomplished and I felt even more empowered as an independent artist to create opportunities like this for other teams and businesses!
