‘Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door’ is the result of a wonderful collaboration between Polish artists Bezt from ETAM Cru and Natalia Rak in Napa Valley, USA.

The mural, organised by ThinkSpace gallery and painted as part of the RAD Napa project, shows the image of a young woman surrounded by luminescent butterflies that emanate a soft and warm pink light, in stark contrast to the blue and cool, and rather spooky background landscape.

The RAD Napa project is the product of a partnership between the Napa Valley Vine Trail, Napa Valley Wine Train and members of Napa’s local arts community that joined forces to create the first art district in the Napa Valley.

According to the organisers, RAD Napa will transform the existing Cross-Town Commuter Path into a cultural corridor providing an experiential and educational trail celebrating our beautiful Napa Valley.  This will be accomplished by applying murals to the backs of buildings, installing sculptures, fence art, landscaping, gateway features, and more.
