Nationally renowned graffiti artist paints in RC


Art Alley in Rapid City has attracted a nationally renowned graffiti artist from Minneapolis Minnesota to paint on its walls.   

Peyton Scott Russell, know as "Daesk", arrived Thursday and spent the last couple of days, including Saturday to leave his artistic mark on the west side of the alley.

Daesk traveled through art alley a few months ago and made it a point to come back and use his talents in Rapid City.

He says he hopes this will help bring more artists to the alley, but also inspire others to create their work in his place.   

"It's like building sand castles," said Daesk. "You do something you create beauty and the next artist comes along and covers up your piece and does something else. If I come back again in the spring or the summer and if I see this here I'm going to be very disappointed."

Tyler Read with the Art Alley Artist Guild says he hopes this could put Rapid City on the map for graffiti artist in the Midwest.

Daesk says the mural he painted is in remembrance to his grandfather, and two children who's names are a major part of it.
