Last August twenty artists from around the globe met up in Portland, Oregon for the 2nd annual Forest for the Trees Festival. The annual mural festival is curated by local artist, gentle giant and 1xRUN alum Gage Hamilton. Artists at a festival this large have no choice but to bring their A game with no excuses. Digging through the archives, here’s a few shots 1xRUN Contributing Photographer Mike Popso took while he was in town covering last year’s event.
