Atlanta, Ga — ArtzyBella announced a new completion of a mural by Atlanta native and CEO
AshleyBella. This mural is the first of its kind, and the only mural installation completed at King
Center. Today, she is placing the final touches on a beautiful vibrant mural which was
commissioned by Wellspring Living’s 20th Anniversary Murals Series. This occasion celebrates
20 years of fighting human trafficking in Atlanta. The mural is located at and can be seen from
both Boulevard & Auburn Ave or Boulevard & Edgewood Ave Atlanta, Ga.
“It’s pretty heavy to know that I’m the first artist to ever paint on the King Center building. As an
Atlanta native and a social entrepreneur who cares deeply about the community- this means
everything”, says Ashley. “I don’t take what I’m doing lightly.” Due to ethics and policies around
her work, Ashley has kept much of what she knows about survivors private. Through mural
installations, she has found a way to use art to tell their stories. “The work I did as an advocate
in the anti-trafficking movement was hard because most of the time I couldn’t even talk to my
family and friends about what the women were going through and my experience working with
them in different safe houses and recovery homes”, she said. As the founder of her own
company, Ashley now has the freedom to bring awareness to the cause through her art. She is
also a cultural arts advocate, stakeholder, and has an interest in bringing awareness to
“I’m very pleased with the work that Ashley is doing,” says Cierra Bobo, Brand Strategist at
Wellspring who also helped bring the partnership to life. “We are proud to work with Ashley”.
Cierra also assisted with mural installations at Delta Airlines Headquarters and her largest mural
to date in Buckhead in partnership with Livable Buckhead. The King Center mural installation is
the most recent work and like all of the former works, is one of great significance.
Ashley will be doing more murals around Atlanta to continue spreading awareness about human
trafficking. Her work with sex trafficking survivors at various non-profits sparked her idea to do
art therapy. Prior to working as a full-time fine artist, Ashley worked as a social worker and
counselor for over 10 years. Three of those years were spent working with sex trafficking
survivors at Wellspring Living’s residential program in Atlanta. She has interviewed over 400 sex
trafficking survivors and heard stories of how they were exposed to what is considered the 2nd
most heinous crime in the world.
