Time Lapse of the Old Post Office Plaza’s New Dog Mural

You may not recognize Phil Jarvis’ name, but chances are you’ve seen his work throughout St. Louis. He’s the mind behind the exterior artwork of Strange Donuts and the shrine to Eddie Gaedel inside Tiny Bar, not to mention various tattoo parlors, cafes, and shops.

Most recently, though, Jarvis set up shop at the Old Post Office Plaza in the heart of Downtown St. Louis to revamp previously blank concrete walls. Downtown STL, Inc., which owns the property, wanted a scene more fitting for the “Doggy Relief Station” where the city’s pups…you know…do that.

Phil Jarvis got the call, and the St. Louisan didn’t think twice about taking on the job. After a long day’s work in the cold, he completed the much-anticipated dog silhouette mural which continues to capture the attention of pedestrians and tourists alike.

Take a look at this time lapse video, which shows Jarvis in action as he brought his vision to life.
