Pink Dog Creative, located in the heart of Asheville’s River Arts District, is a former textile building that has been repurposed into a vibrant mix of artist studios and retail spaces. Artist Randy Shull and Hedy Fischer have transformed the facade of 342-348 Depot Street into a colorful panorama. The large Pink Dog logo painted on the building came from a well executed graffiti tag that was on the property when they bought it. Shull and Fischer decided to incorporate the dog into the building – but paint it pink – thereby taming the ferocious looking dog into a more approachable and whimsical looking creature.
