Toyota Material Handling Midsouth Mural

About This Spot
Artist: Stephen Sloan The nearly 2,000 square-foot mural features elements representing Tennessee, including a realistic Mockingbird, the state flag, and the skyline, among other stunning details. The mural also pays homage to the company’s Japanese roots with a realistic portrait of Sakichi Toyoda, the founder of Toyota Industries, and Japanese-style artistic elements. The mural is now one of the largest in Nashville. The company partnered with Nashville muralist Never Xtinct, whose real name is Stephen Sloan, to create the mural off of Brick Church Pike. The skilled artist used 250 cans of spray paint and an articulating boom lift. From start to finish, the mural took about a month to complete.
