Around here, we love art – especially the kind that’s inventive, smart and culturally on point. One of our favorite local artists is a fascinating painter by the name of John Lytle Wilson. He’s known for a lot of things, namely painting terrorizing robots into seemingly pastoral settings you’d normally find on the wall at MeeMaw’s house. And when he’s not using robots, he’s probably using monkeys running amok with modern technology. Call it a commentary on the cosmic progression of humanity or the ultimate blend of smart, precise and brilliantly colorful art, we call it outstanding.
So a couple months back, Big commissioned a piece of art for our new office expansion. The creative direction was pretty rough: something that incorporated orange monkeys, robots and the Big Boy. Other than that, the sky was the limit. What John came back with was a perfect adaptation of who we are. And by sheer chance, he painted 24 orange monkeys – the exact number of employees we have a Big. In fact, we’ve gone through the painting and assigned people to each individual monkey. See if you can figure it our for yourself.
