About @SAINTPAINTARTS, aka derek donnelly
Over the past several years Donnelly has focused on portrait and mural work. He started painting again in 2010 and met several other artists including the late Bill “Woo” Corriea. In late 2011, Derek opened a small gallery in downtown St. Pete called Saint Paint Arts. This collective helped spawn several careers and is heavily involed in the ever-expanding St. Petersburg art scene. In November 2012 Derek’s best friend and mentor “Woo” passed away from complications from brain surgery he had several years before. On the night of his death Donnelly started a tribute mural to him on the side of Saint Paint gallery. The project quickly evolved into a 40+ artist collaboration, with Derek painting Bill’s face and other artists painting marine life around him to commemerate Woo and his aquatic subject matter. –saintpaintarts.com
