Houston First, in collaboration with OutFront Media, is helping to beautify Houston’s skyline via outdoor billboards. The Sky Art project is designed to fill vacant outdoor space with creative works of art that authentically reflects Houston’s brand as the inspired city that is the, “Culinary and Cultural Capital of the South.”
The 2018 Sky Art board creative winners have been selected. Look for the new art to be posted around the city starting in April.
Thank you to the many artists who submitted, and please check back for the 2019 call for entries.

I am a local artist and native Houstonian.
Self taught, incorporating rich vibrant colors and patterns is always rewarding. I never know where the piece will take me. The progress is very organic despite that it is all created digitally. I believe my influence was in admiring the colorful stained glass windows of churches I attended as a child and also by the "in your face" pop style of comic book art that I so love. Exploring the streets of Houston with camera in hand provides me with plenty of inspiration that always finds it's way into my work.

Janavi M Folmsbee wants to live in a world where we can close our eyes and imagine a painting into creation. Born in Mumbai, India, in 2005 Janavi moved to the U.S. to study at The School of The Art Institute of Chicago, where she received her Bachelor in Fine Arts. As an artist, she has shown her work in India, Beijing and Europe.

When Janavi is not in her studio creating new work or off on a scuba diving adventure in an exciting location like the Maldives or Turks and Caicos, you can find her visiting The Cy Twombly Gallery at the Menil Collection in Houston or writing in a new café that she may have stumbled upon.
Janavi currently lives and works in Houston. This year she has begun to work with various conservation organizations such as the Coral Restoration Foundation and continues to grow her relationships with several others to help with Marine Conservation through Art.
